The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Taiwan Semiconductor needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Taiwan Semiconductor 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 Taiwan Semiconductor 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. Taiwan Semiconductor stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $9.42B till 2017 Q3. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required. Taiwan Semiconductor saw a outflow of $-9.04B from investing activities till 2017 Q3.
