The Occidental Petroleum cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the Occidental Petroleum 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 Occidental Petroleum 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. Occidental Petroleum had cash and cash equivalents of $3.2B at beginning of the year and $2.23B at year end for 2016. Occidental Petroleum cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth.
