It Ain’t Over Until It’s Over


Now, as much as this Gorilla likes steak – this article is obviously not about meat…

It’s about cash. Moolah. Dinero.

Right now, American companies are FLUSH with money…

Which is a little weird and unusual – seeing as there seems to be companies going out of business left and right.

How is this possible?

Well, just because some companies are cash rich at the moment – doesn’t mean things are going well for everybody.

Obviously, that seems counterintuitive – but if you’ve been around the markets for any length of time – then you’ve seen that this story has been told before.

Regardless, a lot of companies have a LOT of money right now…

So, what are they going to do with it?

Let’s see what we can find out…

Yes, it’s true…

Last quarter – US companies decided to bulk up their cash reserves – amassing a record-breaking $4.1 trillion is cash reserves.

Yes, you read that right – a trillion… with a “T.”

Apparently, companies are now sitting on 12.6% more cash than last year.

That’s a whopping $1.3 trillion more than what they had before the pandemic hit.

So… why the sudden love for cash hoarding?

Well, with high interest rates – it’s become way cooler to save rather than borrow money – and with all this cash lying around, companies are feeling brave enough to dabble in short-term investments.

Most of this treasure is parked in cash and cash-like instruments – think deposits, loans, and securities – which are currently pulling in sweet returns of around 5%.

But wait, there’s more!

Some über savvy companies are channeling their stash into longer-term investments like corporate and US government bonds – which actually require a bit more patience – but they promise to be more profitable and less risky over time.

Imagine that?  Being patient and it actually paying off.

Now is a great time to go cash heavy…

Lining those pockets really pays off, seeing as interest rates are at decade highs – nearly one in ten non-financial companies in the S&P 500 earned more from interest on their cash than they paid on their debts last quarter.

Yes, you read that correctly.

This solid income isn’t just a safety net – it also lets companies pounce on money-making opportunities at the drop of a hat.

But of course, there’s always a twist…

Companies have another trick up their sleeves for all that cash: share buybacks.

By buying back more shares and reducing the supply in the market, they can – theoretically – push up the price of the remaining shares. It’s a neat little trick that investors seem to love.

Goldman Sachs expects US share buybacks to jump 16% next year…

And potentially surpassing $1 trillion for the first time ever. If this prediction holds – it could keep the US market rally going strong.

So, while companies are busy hoarding cash and making it rain in the short-term investments department – they’re also setting the stage for some serious market moves.

But right now, US companies are basically the Scrooge McDucks of the modern world – diving into their vaults of cash and hoping to turn it into even more gold…

And while this might sound like a smart move – only time will tell if all that hoarding and investing will pay off in the long run.
