From the highlights:
Foreign private holdings of U.S. securities (other than U.S. Treasury securities) increased $760 billion to $6.1 trillion. Foreign holdings of U.S. bonds increased to $3.3 trillion mostly as a result of net foreign purchases, and foreign holdings of U.S. stocks increased to $2.8 trillion as a result of both net foreign purchases and price appreciation.
The stock of foreign direct investment in the United States increased $271 billion to $2.42 trillion.
Bottom Line: Despite subprime mortgage and credit problems, a weak economy and real estate market, foreign investors expressed their continued confidence in the U.S. economy, by buying our stocks and bonds, and investing billions of dollars in American companies.
