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. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in Sony Corp stock analysis. Sony Corp had a positive net income cash flow of $4.93B till this quarter of 2018 Q4. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. SNE decrease in investments stood at a value of $-7.4B for the latest quarter 2018 Q4.
