Goldman Sachs Chief Strategist Cohen - This Is the Year the Big Cap Companies Start Deploying Their Cash Hoards
Posted by: CanadianValue (IP Logged)

- Cohen thinks 2013 is the year that the large cash hoards that have been built up for years start to get used in the form of dividends, acquisitions and expansion.
- Earnings and book values have been increasing along with share prices so the stock market valuation has not gotten any less attractive.
- The fact that many companies still trade below book value means that an acquisition is a less expensive way to expand (buying below book) than building something new.
- All Western countries have declining birth rates; without immigration it is difficult if not impossible to grow economies.
