The financial analysis of WMT requires an investor to check the cash flows for Walmart. While its important to look at the Walmart 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 Walmart 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. Walmart purchased $2.26B worth of WMT shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Walmart stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Walmart saw a outflow of $1.69B from investing activities for 2018-Q2. View details of Walmart cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters
