Positive Dividends Paid line items, sign flip?

Hi tf

I have been looking into quarterly Dividends Paid line item in the Cash Flow statements.

I noticed that on some occasions, the line item is reported positive whereas should have been negative.
I don't know if it is a parsing error resulting in sign flip, an actual report mistake by companies or a calculation error.

As always, a list of findings:

  • thanks, for the cash flow the Q2 values are usually also calculated (meaning they are not directly reported) just like the Q4 values, so for these it could be the known problem that the reporting of the companies changed over time (leading to mistakes when calculating the "missing" periods) - but I'll check it out in more detail and I'll report back
