Look Beyond Earnings: 4 Stocks with Increasing Cash Flows

We are already into the second-quarter reporting cycle and investors can be lured by healthy profits and solid earnings surprises. But even a profit-making company can have a dearth of cash flow and face bankruptcy if its profits are not channelized in the right direction.

Therefore, looking beyond profits to a company’s cash position will be far more rewarding because this indicates its true financial health. In fact, cash is the most essential factor for any company, the lifeblood for its existence, development and success. It is the fuel for a company’s growth and cushion amid downturn.

To find this efficiency, one needs to consider a company’s net cash flow figure. While in any business cash moves in and out, it is net cash flow that explains how much money a company is actually generating.

If a company is experiencing a positive cash flow then it denotes an increase in its liquid assets, which gives it the means to meet debt obligations, shell out for expenses, reinvest in business, endure downturns and finally return wealth to shareholders. On the other hand, a negative cash flow indicates a decline in the company’s liquidity, which in turn lowers its flexibility to support these moves.

However, having a positive cash flow merely does not secure a company’s future growth. To ride on the growth curve, a company must have its cash flow increasing because that indicates management’s efficiency in regulating its cash movements and less dependency on outside financing for running its business.

Therefore, keep yourself abreast with the following screen to bet on stocks with rising cash flows.
