  • Apple (AAPL), unsurprisingly, has the largest overseas cash balance of any tech company: Moody's believes it rose 15% in the March quarter to $74B. Joining Apple in the top 5 are Microsoft (MSFT - $50B), Cisco (CSCO - $42.3B), Oracle (ORCL - $25.1B), and Qualcomm (QCOM - $16.5B). Altogether, tech companies account for roughly half of an estimated $457B in overseas cash held by U.S. firms. Efforts to obtain a "tax holiday" on the repatriation of overseas cash have stalled.  [View news story]
    If Rommney had gotten fair taxation on the companies he outsourced overseas then there would be less of that . That goes for other corps based here but moving manufacturing abroad . With wages rising overseas and elsewhere it would make it even more attractive to move mfg. back home . I do not understand why offshore mfg. , should be taxed anyway . The money is not earned here but tariffs still apply . If our President knew anything about business , not just taxes ,the taxes would be lowered and more competitive . Anyone knows that lower taxes encourages growth , more jobs and THEN more taxes . Let 'em bring the money home ! How does stealing from the " rich " and giving it to the poor create or motivate anyone to get an education and a job.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - Where The Fed Stops, Nobody Knows (6/17/13) [View article]
    I am a retired stockbroker and have followed Jack-in-the-Box for 4-5 years. I thought they had made a wise decision to try to sell some of their franchises to the franchisees, using the proceeds to expand the faster growing, higher-margin Qboda (Mexican food).
    However, this plan has been stymied to a great degree by the "great recession". The franchisees are in the same boat as other businesses and cannot obtain the funds to buy their franchises.
    I surely hope that once this recession has proven that it is really over, the franchisees will be able to borrow the money and that Qboda will be able to grow more rapidly.
