The AFP Corporate Cash Indicators show changes in corporate cash holdings over the last quarter and the last year. They include a forward looking measure of corporate cash and short‐term investment holdings and of expected business conditions. Over time, the indicators reveal broad trends and shifts in corporate thinking.

Each quarter, AFP asks select members representing a broad cross section of U.S. businesses the same questions: whether their company’s short-term holdings increased or decreased in the past year and past quarter; whether investment selections for those holdings changed; and whether they expect cash holdings to increase or decrease in the coming quarter. Participants manage their companies’ cash and short-term investment portfolios and are fully aware of their companies’ liquidity needs and business strategies. Since corporate decisions to grow/shrink the size of cash and short-term investment portfolios reflect their business outlook and direction, changes reported by this broad group of companies are indicators of economic activity.

AFP began collecting quarterly data in January 2011 and has now collected over 20 data sets.
