90% of their cash hoard is overseas where they have paid no taxes. If they pay that fat dividend they will have to pay hefty tax bill to uncle SAM.
Apple pays a lot of taxes overseas. Oh well, so much for the truth.
They're going to issue debt to pay for what they promised. This will actually be good because there will be positive sentiment for AAPL with it's AA+ rating. Not a catalyst, but it's a good thing.
They pay NOTHING! TILT...............GAME OVER..............Nice try!
