Over time, companies have shown various patterns of cash flow that have been linked by research to company life cycle phases. The pattern should be checked for consistency over time, and whether or not the trends in each section are up or down.
The following examples of cash flow statements take into account the trend for each section of the cash flow statement over time. Cash Flow Analysis Example: Blockbuster For example, the trend for Blockbuster has been a decrease of net cash inflows from operating activities from million in to 51 million in Less cash to work with means less cash for growth, and less cash to pay debts.
Google Google generates so much cash from operations that it does not need a lot of financing activity. How has Google financed these investments?
With no debt to pay off and no dividends paid, it is at a competitive advantage of not needing debt and additional financing. In fact, its recent activity from financing activities is not significant.
Since Google does not need to pay off debt or issue stock, its cash from financing activities is slightly positive and immaterial in Perhaps the only factor that could turn its pattern to four with significant CFFF - activity is issuing dividends to shareholders, or buying back its own stock, which would reward stockholders with higher earnings per share.

Pattern 4 Pattern 4 indicates that a company has enough positive cash flow from operations to fund operations, fund capital investments, and pay down debt, issue dividends, or repurchase its own stock. This is a very healthy company typically at a mature stage of growth, or growing moderately.
Pattern 5 If a seasoned company shows a pattern of 5, it would not be a positive signal since it is showing net cash outflows from operations.
