On the free cash flow calculation in your video illustration (Alphabet), please advise why the other investing activities are not deducted from the operating cash flow. Do you not consider the other investing activities as cash outflow?
When calculating FCF is based on the operational business. Investing activities may outflow for investment which is not the main business operation.
At the moment I’m stuck filling in my excel spreadsheet. I want to document the Cash & Cash Equivalents, but this company has expanded its entry on the Income Statement to Cash, Cash Equivalents & Investments. Should I rather use the Net Operating Cash Flow entry from the Cash Flow Statement (to subtract Ivestments)?
