    With what ratings agencies have become, the words investment grade mean so little to me. Its like a power train warrantee. Who TF ever had a car with a broken power train, its a meaningless gesture.

    In spite of the non issue of re-estimated cash on corporate balance sheets a few weeks back, cash is on corporate balance sheets because Bush gave them that un-taxed money last decade, they feel they can hold the economy hostage while they leave it sit off shore now. While Apple pays their employes shit…

    Keep loving Apple who pay their people like WalMart and sit in their cash like a Tea Party retiree in his trailer in Arkansas. How cool Apple is… yeah, good luck moving your data, suckers.

    @VennData: taking the low road again? So, if someone doesn’t fit your narrow dogma you use insults? The Tea Party retiree may well be a veteran salt of the earth that gave it all so that You can rant?

    Most large US Corporations do not need to borrow, but to meet general US financing needs, it is less costly to issue bonds @ 2% than to repatriate cash and pay US tax @35%.
