The Altria cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Altria debt position, the cash flow statement becomes equally important because public companies use accrual accounting. For example, if a company sells a product which gets counted as Altria revenue but does not convert to cash because it does not receive payment in the same quarter, it affects the cash position for that period. Altria saw a cash impact of $-2.92B from the buyback of MO shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Altria stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. MO decrease in investments stood at a value of $-467M for the latest year 2017.
