The financial analysis of MTH requires an investor to check the cash flows for Meritage. While its important to look at the Meritage 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 Meritage 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. Meritage had cash and cash equivalents of $131.7M at beginning of the quarter and $172.55M at quarter end of 2018 Q1. Meritage cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth.
