The WPX Energy cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the WPX Energy 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 WPX Energy 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. WPX Energy cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. WPX Energy had cash and cash equivalents of $496M at the beginning of the year and $189M at year end for 2017. WPX decrease in investments stood at a value of $-1.44B for the latest year 2017.
