The effects of bulging corporate purses.

High cash levels, accumulated by S&P 500 corporations, are being put to work. Above charts are showing growing levels of capital expenditures, M&A activities, dividends, and stock buybacks by the nation's largest corporations.

If sustainable, this will benefit the economy. Capital expenditures can add to the industrial growth. Dividends and stock buybacks will probably add to consumer spending and housing sector strength. Corporate mergers and acquisition activities may strengthen equity markets.
