America Inc. Has a Record $2.5 Trillion Gift for Stock Investors

  • U.S. companies revive bulls with buybacks, dividends and M&A
  • Flow driven by momentum shares, fueling sector outperformance

Corporate America is set to shower investors with a record surge of cash.

Between buybacks, dividends, and merger activities, companies are poised to plow $2.5 trillion into the stock market this year, according to UBS Group AG. The buying spree is equivalent to 10 percent of the S&P 500’s market capitalization, easily outstripping prior records.
