  • Sony Corp has cash of $8.93B 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 Sony Corp stock price.
  • The cash generated from the core business or operations was positive at $7.53B for Sony Corp in the latest quarter. For an internet company, this would include all those activities which are involved in eventually selling advertisement space on its website or any online service.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was negative at $-11.66B for SNE 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.
