I know Apple has a LOT of cash lying around, but buying Disney? Marvel/Star Wars/Pixar Disney?

Quote:
Rosenblatt Securities analyst Bernie McTernan in a Friday research report, for example, suggested that Apple, led by CEO Tim Cook, could consider acquiring the Walt Disney Co., led by executive chairman Bob Iger and new CEO Bob Chapek, after its stock dropped below the $100 mark last week.


More than just a rumor, that sounds like someone trying to game the stock market.

Remember when Disney was gonna buy Apple?
they don't have that kind of cash lying around because it is all overseas avoiding taxes...

This. For Apple to buy Disney, they would have to repatriate billions of dollars and pay taxes on it. Uncle Sam could end up getting as much or more than Disney shareholders.

I for one welcome our new Apple overlords. Maybe we could finally get a decent Star Wars movie

Couldn't they just transfer the money to Disney's offshore accounts?
