CASH FLOW is earnings before depreciation and amortization. Cash flow is calculated as the difference between cash inflows and outflows. Cash flow can be derived from Operating Profit by adjusting for items which do not affect payments (e.g. depreciation) and items (e.g. changes in working capital) which affect payments but are not recorded in Operating Profit.
MONEY SUPPLY is the three categories of money supply (MI, M2, M3) as defined by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board.
M1 The sum of-currency held by the public, plus travelers' checks, plus demand deposits, plus other checkable deposits-i.e., negotiable order of withdrawal (NOW) accounts, automatic transfer service (ATS) accounts and credit union share drafts.
M2 MI plus savings accounts and small-denomination time deposits, plus shares in money market mutual funds (other than those restricted to institutional investors) and overnight Eurodollars and repurchase agreements.
M3 M2 plus large-denomination time deposits (over $100,000) at all depository institutions, large-denomination term repurchase agreements and shares in money market mutual funds restricted to institutional investors.
