Cash Flow from Investing Activities

On a cash flow statement, an item summarizing the change to a company's cash flow from its investments in securities. Cash flow from investing activities includes capital gains and losses. It is important to the cash flow statement because investments in securities may result in negative cash flow even when the company is otherwise profitable. Depending on the liquidity of the company's portfolio, the negative cash flow may actually be positive.
