The Xcel Energy cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Xcel 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 Xcel 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. Xcel Energy saw a cash impact of $-3M from the buyback of XEL shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Xcel Energy stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Xcel Energy saw a outflow of $-3.3B from investing activities for 2017.
