The Microsoft cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Microsoft 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 Microsoft 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. Microsoft purchased $1.88B worth of MSFT shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Microsoft stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. MSFT decrease in investments stood at a negative value of $-39.41B for the latest 2017-Q3. View details of Microsoft cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
