Mr.Roques,

Which is probably why Ordinary shareholders in Apple have now won more say in deciding the Board.

Before you decide on(what could be ) foolish acquisitions-Ask what Mr.Shareholder thinks.

This is the way that all companies should function,unfortunately most S&P 500 companies (Tech companies in particular),tend to consider Cash on their Balance sheet as personal assets of the Company CEOs/Board's which they can spend wherever and however they like.

Corporate Governance? Whats that?

What percentage of the cash they hold do you think they will give back to shareholders? 30%? 60%? They would still have plenty of cash to go buy a few things.

Bolaji, i would think that is a great suggestion. Highly motivated employees can really push the company forward.

Mr.Roques,

Name one Green Energy company that is doing extremely well(and has done so for last 5 years).

Green energy companies have been proven to be an absolute disaster for Shareholders,Taxypayers and employees.

Here's the latest company to bite the dust.

@Ariella, I agree, at least some of Apple's cash can be used to make amends at these factories. That is to ensure safer working practices and other related issues are adhered at the supplier's factories.

Why not because Apple has always invented something for their customers and becasue of that only other companies made money. Steve Jobs may be gone but still I feel his ideas do work and they will keep on working for Apple for a longer period.

@Bolaji, I would think so. But I do know that there are people who are such fans of Apple that they will stick by the brand, no matter what.

Ariella, That "necessity" to drive a hard bargain with suppliers and workers can come to be a problem for the company later. The negative press Apple is getting now is not in its overall interest in the long term.
