Stock Cash Flow Excel Template

The Excel Price Feed Add-in provides many formulas which can be used to construct a cash flow statement for a stock.

What is a cash flow statement?

A cash flow statement provides a high level view of all the cash inflows that a company receives from its ongoing operations together will all the outgoing cash outflows that enable the business to operate. The details of these cash flows are released with the companys earnings announcements and are available in their annual report.

There are 3 main categories of cash flows:

  • Cash from operating activities which includes income.
  • Cash used for investing activities which includes investments in property, plant and equipment as well as cash used for acquisitions.
  • Cash flows from financing activities which includes debt repayments and dividends paid.

The cash flow statement also provides the total cash available at the beginning of the period as well as the cash available at the end of the period. The difference between these two numbers is the net change in cash.
