The Synchrony cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Synchrony 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 Synchrony 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. Synchrony saw a cash impact of $-410M from the buyback of SYF shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Synchrony stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Synchrony had an inflow of $1.92B from operating activities, $-313M spend due to financing activities, and $755M inflow due to investing activities till 2018 Q1.
