Bet on 4 Stocks with Swelling Cash Flows to Boost Your Portfolio

Cash is crucial to a company and offers strength and vitality. It gives a company the flexibility to make investment decisions and fuel to run its growth engine.

Obviously, investors flock to companies that earn profits, but even a profitable business can succumb to failure if its cash flow is uneven and eventually file for bankruptcy. However, a company’s resilience can be effectively judged by evaluating its efficiency in generating cash flows, as cash not only guards a company from market mayhem but also indicates that profits are being channelized in the right direction. It is, in fact, an indicator of its true financial health.

To find this efficiency, one needs to consider its net cash flow figure. While in any business cash moves in and out, it is net cash flow that explains how much money the 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.

And that's what we're screening for today…
