Cash flow

• In investments, it represents earnings before depreciation, amortization and non-cash charges. Sometimes called cash earnings. Cash flow from operations (called funds from operations) by real estate and other investment trusts is important because it indicates the ability to pay dividends.

• Net income for the accounting period adjusted for changes in certain assets, liabilities and depreciation

• Also known as Cash Flow Per Share. The amount of cash a company generates during a period, calculated by adding noncash charges -- such as depreciation -- to net income after taxes. Cash Flow per Share is calculated by dividing the Cash Flow by the number of outstanding shares, and is sometimes used in lieu of Earnings per Share in analyzing a company. Cash Flow can be used as an indication of a company's financial strength. A company pays dividends from this cash amount. Some analysts consider this figure more meaningful than net income because it is the actual amount of money generated by the company.
