The Sony Corp cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Sony Corp 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 Sony Corp 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. Sony Corp stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $1.74B for 2016. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required.   The cash from operating activities for Sony Corp is $6.22B for 2016, which saw a decrease of -9.46% from previous year.
