Apple is about to start a new $5 billion bond sale


In the upcoming weeks, Apple plans to offer five different bonds in a sale to finance its buyback and dividend initiatives, and could potentially raise up to $5 billion.
Just days after its recent buyback of $90 billion worth of shares, on Monday, Apple filed a prospectus with the US Securities and Exchange Commission for a new bond program.

It will release five bonds with maturities spanning from two to thirty years. The longer-term bonds could offer investors as much as 1.35% more than US Treasury bonds of a similar type.

Apple's longer-term bonds could have a coupon rate of approximately 5%. The actual yield would depend on the bond's final pricing, which the company will determine as it gauges the market demand in the near future.

This seems like an investment opportunity, but for people much younger than me, and maybe a couple more here.

Maybe the actual terms will be better than I imagine, but I can't imagine getting windfall profits from this kind of deal.

But then I no nothing of financial matters.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Buyback? Why? Isn’t that kind of a reverse stock split?

This makes zero sense to me, someone please explain. Couldn't they buy back $5 billion less stock?
