The Panasonic 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 Panasonic 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 Panasonic 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. Panasonic saw a cash impact of $-0.9M from the buyback of PCRFY shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Panasonic stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Panasonic saw a outflow of $-3.91B from investing activities for 2017.

The Panasonic stock price history and Panasonic stock comparison chart inevitably reflect its cash flow situation.

  • Panasonic has cash of $11.82B on hand. A healthy amount of cash on hand is necessary for any company. Cash has an opportunity cost associated with it, and too much cash in bank may mean that the firm has no or limited growth plans. Hence its important to track the Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents along with the Panasonic stock price.
  • Cash Flow from operating activities: Panasonic reported a positive operating cash flow of $3.58B for 2017 and has seen a decrease from the previous year. Operating cash flow comes from main business activities. Investors look for positive cash flow from recurring operating activities.
  • Growth companies, typically most tech companies; spend heavily on investing activities and this figure stood at $-3.91B for PCRFY stock. Sometimes a company might have a negative overall cash flow which may not be really bad if it is due to investment expenses. Hence it is important to check the cash flow from investment activities.
  • Cash Flow from financing activities: Financing activities include the cash that comes into a company in the form of loans or interest earned or shareholders money, as well as the cash that goes out. Panasonic earned $2.74B from financing activities, in the form of repayment of loans or interest paid, dividend pay-out to shareholders etc.
