Forex Flash: Apple receives inaugural credit rating of AA+ – Deutsche Bank

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Apple's quarterly earnings report was the main story after the closing bell yesterday. The company delivered better-than-expected earnings and revenue but sales outlook was light. Capital management was a key focus with Apple more than doubling its capital return program from $45bn to $100bn by 2015. For us credit people, it was interesting to see Apple announce plans to put some debt on its balance sheet for the first time since 2003.
