We conduct an empirical study on Chinese listed firms’ investmentcash flow sensitivities in different stages of the macroeconomic cycle during 1993–2004, and find that macro-economy has a significant effect on investmentcash flow sensitivities. When economic slowdown occurred between 1998 and 2001, sample firms reduced working capital substantially to maintain some necessary investment level of fixed assets, that is, firms stabilized fixed assets investment by adjusting working capital. However, the sensitivity coefficients of fixed assets investment to cash or sales revenue were not systematically higher in the depressed stage than in the booming stage.
