There are no negative implications to apple's debt because it contributes directly to shareholder value at the lowest interest rates in history. Do you know how many shares apple has been able to buy with that debt at much lower PPS? Do you know how close congress is to attaching a repatriation bill to the next transportation package? Did you think about aapl's PPS value when that happens? Obviously not?

Well for my money apple is the heavyweight champion in their division.
Apple will fix any problems peopler having with Apple music. They will also decouple the iTunes store because it is responsible for a lot of the problems.

Apple Tv will be the product that brings everything together with Apps, gaming, HomeKit, Siri, a killer interface and a streaming service that makes it possible to cut the cable cord.
Sometime in the next year when apple reaches a trillion dollar make cap and is on the cover of every magazine as the tech winner it will be time to sell some of your shares. That is 70 to 80 points away.

They'll sell tens of millions for Christmas.
I assume apple is still negotiating content deals and we should be hearing about that soon.
It's taken a long time but Steve's words are about to come true.
