Apple's (AAPL +1.6%) bondholders have lost some $280.6M on paper (somewhat cleverly dubbed an "iLoss" by WSJ) since the debt was issued last month as speculation of QE tapering has sent 10-year Treasury yields climbing. Losses on the 10-year "iBond" sat at ~$137M through Tuesday as prices sunk to 97.377 cents on the dollar. The spread to Treasurys has also widened since issuance, Bloomberg says.
