Free cash flows are used by companies for dividend payments, expansions, and acquisitions. Thus, large negative free cash flow could force a company to take more debt financing.

Southern Company (SO) is facing challenges with respect to its free cash flow front. It has also failed to generate a positive free cash flow in the last five years. 

Peer NextEra Energy (NEE) looks comparatively better placed when it comes to free cash flows. NEE’s free cash flows had been on a solid uptrend before a slight fall in 2016.
