US multinationals grapple with soaring dollar

Quick Summary AI Powered

NEW YORK: The rapid rise of the US dollar since the start of the year is a double-edged sword for American multinational companies, pushing some of them to decide whether to hedge or reposition their activities abroad to avoid fallout.

The current high volatility in foreign exchange markets also means it costs more to hedge, so some firms are choosing not to use those instruments.

Kyriba estimates the currency effects could mean a US$40 billion hit to earnings of S&P 500 firms in the first half of the year.
