CFA Practice Question

Negative cash flows from operations and high "cash burn rates" are two factors that may have contributed to the decline in Internet stock values in 2001 (the dot-com bubble). True or False?
Correct Answer: True

Many Internet stock values had increased significantly based on future expectations rather than past performance. Many of these companies were spending cash at a much faster rate than they were generating cash through sales.
