Libs have insured us corporate tax cut will lead to stock buyback but according to Bloomberg that isn’t the case. Only 16 percent has gone into buying back stocks and dividends saw an 11 percent boost.
Seems to me we were right. Reinvestment has increase drastically.
So oncce again libs have been proven to be wrong.
After months of heated debate over whether companies would hand the biggest tax break in three decades back to shareholders or reinvest it in their businesses, there’s finally some hard data.
Among the 130 companies in the S&P 500 that have reported results in this earnings season, capital spending increased by 39 percent, the fastest rate in seven years, data compiled by UBS AG show. Meanwhile, returns to shareholders are growing at a much slower pace, with net buybacks rising 16 percent. Dividends saw an 11 percent boost.
It’s good news isn’t libs? Are you glad you were wrong…or does this angers you?
