Why Now?
Companies are maintaining record amounts of cash on their balance sheets.

Given the volatility of the capital markets and lower investment returns, dividends and buybacks could have a larger impact on overall total shareholder return.

Companies must determine the most optimal uses of their cash and borrowing capacity. Does it make sense to reinvest internally, make acquisitions, or distribute to shareholders by declaring dividends and/or buy back their shares? This presentation provides the results of a 20+ year study (updated through December 2011) that illustrates by market cap size, economic sector and investment style (growth or value) and compares the various use of cash strategies by total return. The study includes both bull and bear market cycles.
