A majority of U.S. companies have cash reserves of $1 trillion or more, according to a report released Tuesday by the Center for Responsive Politics.
It’s a figure that has been growing faster than the economy as a whole, with the median value of the U.K.’s stock market in the first quarter of 2018 nearly double the value of that of the S&P 500, the index it tracks.
While the amount of cash available to the companies isn’t what’s really concerning, it does reflect an inability to borrow.
“The Fed has done a really good job at stimulating growth, but the reality is the debt burden for U.B.C. and other large companies is so high that they are able to borrow in a manner that’s just unsustainable,” said Brian L. Keltner, director of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
“So I think that we need to pay attention to how the U:R is created and how the cash flow is created.
It doesn’t have to be like this.”
While most of the companies on the list were small or medium-sized companies, several of the larger companies have more than $1 billion in cash reserves.
The biggest names on the short list are Wells Fargo, the biggest bank in the U; Citigroup, the second-biggest; and AT&ore, the third-largest.
Among the banks, Wells Fargo is a bit of a wild card.
While it owns $8.5 trillion of the financial assets in the United States, it has no cash flow.
Instead, it relies on issuing bonds to buy assets and paying interest.
So its cash is sitting on the sidelines, with investors worried that it could suffer a run on its securities.
Citigroup also had $4.5 billion in its reserves.
That means it’s not making a profit, but it can borrow from the Fed to finance its businesses.
While most other large U.P. banks, such as JPMorgan Chase, have some cash in their accounts, Citigroup has none.
And while Citigroup’s debt is small compared to some other large banks, it’s also low compared to other large lenders, like Bank of America.
And in the case of Wells Fargo and other big banks, there’s more than enough cash to back up the interest payments on its debt.
That’s why Citigroup and other banks are paying higher interest rates than they were just a year ago, when they were trading at 2.2 percent and 1.5 percent, respectively.
“Citi and other companies are paying very low rates to borrow, and that’s a concern,” said Jonathan Wolk, an analyst with the firm S&P Capital IQ.
“We’re starting to see some signs that banks are beginning to take some of this on as they’re not as comfortable with the cost of capital.”
Wells Fargo was not included in the report because it doesn’t disclose how much cash it has.
Citibank is the third biggest bank by assets, with $6.5tn in assets.
But the median size of its balance sheet is $3.5tr, and it has a lot of cash sitting on its balance sheets, meaning it’s easy for the government to force it to pay interest to the U.: Wells Fargo said it had $3 billion in reserves, while Citibanks reserves are $1.3tr.
Wells Fargo also had a significant increase in its cash from January through March.
But its balance in that period was less than half of its January balance, according a regulatory filing last year.
In a statement, Wells said that it is making changes to its cash management to better manage its cash flow and that it will not make any further announcements until the end of the quarter.
The bank said that the average balance for its most recent quarter was $1,974,000.
But analysts said that could be an overestimate, since it includes certain payments from other lenders, including Citibans $400 million payment to Wells Fargo.
Wells said in its statement that it was working with regulators to ensure that it continues to operate in a way that is sustainable.
Citbank, which has $6bn in cash, also had significant cash in its balance, although it’s far less than its peers.
CitBanks $1bn payment to the Fed on Feb. 12 was the largest ever.
Wells has been under pressure in recent months to provide more detail on its financial condition, including the amount that it paid in interest.
It said it would release quarterly financial statements on Feb 2.
