Cash Flow From Investing Activities
It refers to the amount of money that the company has generated or lost from its investing activities. It includes cash flows from stocks, bonds, money received or lost from the buying and selling of subsidiaries and cash spent on physical property (such as plants and equipment). Negative Cash Flows from Investing Activities are not necessarily bad as growing companies usually require more physical investments - property, plant, and equipment (PP&E) - to ensure growth. Positive Cash Flows from Investing Activities may not be necessarily good as it may imply that the company has divested investments to generate short-term cash, potentially even at a loss from the original price paid for the investment.
