    $AAPL set to borrow, gets favorable credit rating, though it may indicate the difficulty in using the "cash horde" so often mentioned.

    • XRTrader: No! doesnt show difficulty in using "cash hoard" at all! its just a smart corporate finance move - borrow at such low rates

    • XRTrader: keep liquidity on hand. and, don't have to move cash back from overseas - why pay 30% tax instead of issuing bonds at 3%?

    • Herr Hansa: I will disagree with you on the "smart" aspect. Borrowing to increase capital spending towards new innovative products would be smarter.

    • Herr Hansa: Borrowing to give money to shareholders and prop up share levels does not appear to be smart, in my opinion.
