Reading this article today - http://www.crn.com.au/News/341698,apples-massive-us17-billion-bond-deal.aspx? - I caught this interesting sentence
Although the company has a staggering $US145 billion in cash, only $US45 billion of that is readily available in the United States - meaning Apple needs to raise about $US60 billion over the next three years to fund the shareholder capital return plan.
Makes you think....does eventually the double dutch eat you from within? If you cant spend it on overseas acquisitions will it always eventually catch up? or is there yet another tricky dick way around this as well?
