Come again? Shouldn't a gain on an investment be added back to the Cash Flow Statement?

A gain on sale of investment is deducted from the Operating cash flow section. The proceeds from the sale of any investments are included as a cash inflow in the Investing cash flow section. The reason they are subtracted from the Operating section is that the gain is part of net income.
