Apple's debt offering only worth $12B

Apple's (AAPL - unchanged) offering size is below the $17B it raised a year ago, and had been reported to be looking to raise this year. Investors have placed over $40B worth of orders.

As expected, interest rates are low: 10-year bonds are offered to yield only 77bps more than comparable Treasurys, and 30-year bonds just 100 bps more.

The 7-part offering, which will help pay for additional buybacks, will increase Apple's total debt load to $29B. The company's cash/investment balance is at $150B, of which $18B is in the U.S.

    I believe management has some money left from previous authorization.
    Let us hope management was savy to buy back shares at lower prices.

    Buy the stock and if you have extra cash, buy the bonds.

    There you go, apple is pulling as many levers as possible.


    DEAD CHEAP financing to buy a stock with a current earnings yield of more than 10%...

    Yeha, Apple at $1,650 is more than $1,000. So you must be tuned in. The analyst are having their managers dump lots of other stocks to buy up Apple. Shortly after post split, watch Apple blow thru White's $777 a share number ($111 post split ).White is going to have to set the bar for Apple stock much higher than $111 post split and very soon.
