Foreign Buying of U.S. Assets Jumped to Record in May (Update3)

July 17 (Bloomberg) -- Foreign buying of U.S. financial assets unexpectedly climbed to a record in May as international investors snapped up American stocks and corporate bonds.

Total holdings of equities, notes and bonds climbed a net $126.1 billion, from $80.3 billion the previous month, the Treasury said today in Washington. Economists predicted foreign investment would slow to a net $73 billion, based on the median estimate in a Bloomberg News survey.

Demand for stocks and bonds rose as the economy strengthened from the first quarter, when it expanded at the slowest pace in four years. Private and government reports showed manufacturing and export gains are propelling growth as housing slumps. The purchases offset diversification by China of its foreign-exchange reserves, as the nation sold Treasuries for a second month.

hmmm, suddenly i understand how the dow went through 14000

If you think of it as the value has remained the same, its the medium by which its measured ($) that has devalued accordingly. People just don't know it yet. All that lovely foreign held dollar reserves coming back home is going to do wonderful things for the value of the dollar and consequently US inflation.
