IMO, Apple should should make a bid for TWX. ;)
$65 billion +/- should take it.
How to pay for it? Float a "small" bond offering, cut the dividend and cut back on the share repurchase - all for just a brief time. Cousin Carl will have a nervous breakdown. I don't get an XFR. And Tim Cook forgoes his bonus. But that's my idea of shared suffering for the greater good.
But however it plays out, if it comes to light that Cook has let the ball go over the middle of plate while he was staring into the distance, I will have lost what little, remaining faith I have in this guy.
