RE: Apple Inc.
Mr. WB, is always ignoring those short-term impacts, and taking advantage of them instead. Will Mr. WB, increase his stake, when market price move lower?  Tongue

Anyway, here is the update, which indicating, the "EU Tax" might not cause too much of an impact to Apple, after-all

Apple's Ireland bill puts US Treasury in tax-credit bind
13 Sep 2016 12:51
[NEW YORK] When Apple Inc was ordered by European regulators to pay USUS$14.5 billion plus interest in back taxes to Ireland, the giant technology company seemed to be facing an expensive headache.

Turns out it's a headache for the US Treasury Department as well.

Under current US tax rules, specialists say Apple would probably be able to claim a foreign tax credit for the repayment, allowing it to lower its tax bill in America, where the 35 per cent corporate income-tax rate is one of the world's highest.

Unlike other industrialised countries, the US taxes its multinational corporations on their global income - while allowing a dollar-for-dollar credit for the foreign taxes they've paid.

So if Apple claimed the credit, the US would stand to lose US$14.5 billion in tax revenues, if the European regulators' finding holds up and current rules apply.

It doesnt make sense right, see the article say "probably able to claim" not confirm can claim...


Apple is famous for not bring back income from overseas and distributing as dividends but keep cash hoard overseas. If they want to claim the international tax credit, they would have to bring all the money back so the governement will tax them 35%, (thats what trump is gonna get the big companies to do) and thats what apple doesnt want to do. After taxing them 35%, which may be billions as well, then apple can claim back the credit lol....

The international tax credit is for when foreign earnings which are already taxed and brought back to USA, a company does not get double taxed.

Maybe the tax accountants on this forum can chip in Big Grin

RE: Apple Inc.
The EU taxing, is appealed by Apple, and the end-result is also a "probably"

There is a sustaining effort to bring back manufacturing to US, by US MNC, including Apple. Once it is materialized in near future, Apple's US$ funding needs are not only shareholders' dividend payout.

Buffett Says Apple Stake Boosted to More Than $18 Billion

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. increased its stake in iPhone maker Apple Inc. to about 133 million shares, Chairman Warren Buffett told CNBC.

That’s more than twice as much as Berkshire held as of Dec. 31, the billionaire told the cable network in an interview Monday. The stake is valued at more than $18 billion, based on Friday’s closing price of $136.66.

Berkshire has been accelerating stock purchases in recent months, adding to stakes in the largest U.S. airlines and Apple. Buffett said the 2017 Apple purchases were made before the company posted quarterly earnings on Jan. 31, a report that pushed shares higher than he wanted to pay.

Apple Introduces Cheapest iPad Yet, Special Edition Red iPhone

by Alex Webb
March 21, 2017, 9:11 PM GMT+8 Updated on March 21, 2017, 10:27 PM GMT+8

Apple Inc. introduced a revamped version of its most popular-sized iPad at the cheapest price yet, and a shiny red iPhone 7, whose sales will help to combat AIDS.

Apple unveiled a new 9.7-inch iPad with a brighter Retina display starting at $329, and a special edition red-aluminum finish iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, part of the company’s decade-long partnership with (RED), which contributes to the Global Fund to fight HIV and AIDS.

“Since we began working with (RED) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products, from the original iPod nano (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition all the way to today’s lineup of Beats products and accessories for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch,” Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said in a statement Tuesday.

Apple’s Secret New iPhone Just Made This 86-Year-Old a Billionaire

By Venus Feng
July 13, 2017, 9:20 AM GMT+8 Updated on July 13, 2017, 3:15 PM GMT+8

The chairman of the world’s largest contract chipmaker has become a billionaire thanks to expected demand for Apple Inc.’s new iPhone.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) shares have surged 27 percent in the past year, lifting founder and Chairman Morris Chang’s personal fortune to $1 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Chang, 86, owns 0.5 percent of the business directly and through his family, according to a May 2017 filing to the Taiwan Stock Exchange.

The climbing valuation is being fueled by optimism for a revenue boost from the upcoming iPhone release, as well as long-term expectations that cars, high-performance computing and the Internet of Things will be a new growth driver for its processors, according to Randy Abrams, a Taipei-based equity analyst at Credit Suisse Group AG.

Elizabeth Sun, TSMC’s spokeswoman, declined to comment on Chang’s net worth.
