US Companies Stash One Trillion Dollars in Cash: Moody's

WASHINGTON — US companies are hoarding nearly one trillion dollars of cash that they are unlikely to use for expansion amid a muddled outlook on economic recovery, rating agency Moody's said Wednesday.

"Companies will hesitate to spend their cash hoards on expansion until there is greater certainty about the direction of the US economy," said Steven Oman, senior vice president at Moody's Investor Service.

A new Moody's study of corporate cash balances found that US companies, excluding financial firms, had about 943 billion dollars of cash and short-term investments on their balance sheets at mid-year 2010. The 20 most cash-rich companies had a combined 346 billion dollars.

By comparison, Moody's said, at the end of 2008, companies had 775 billion dollars of cash.

The economy contracted 6.8 percent in the fourth quarter that year; the worst recession since the Great Depression officially ended in June 2009.

The rating agency noted the companies' apprehension in the face of the weak recovery which slowed to a 1.7 percent growth in economic output in the second quarter of 2010 and has left persistently high unemployment."Given low demand and capacity utilization within certain industries, companies are wary of investing their cash in new capacity and adding workers, thereby doing little to abbreviate the jobless recovery," it said.

Nice sensational title, some excerpts from the above.

No company anywhere is going to spend money to expand and hire unless they have a reasonable assurance that they can sell the product. As long as that uncertainty exists they will not do so. We are seeing it here also as US owned companys are scaling back.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
