Apple reported quarterly earnings and revenue on Tuesday that beat analyst expectations, and its cash hoard is bigger than ever.
The company revealed that its cash pile once again topped $200 billion, hitting $205.7 billion for the fiscal fourth quarter, up from 1.33 percent from last quarter.
To put that in perspective, if you took Apple’s total cash pile and stacked it up in $1 bills, the pile would stretch almost 14,000 miles.
- That’s a round-trip flight from New York to Beijing, if you were traveling west across the Pacific.
- The column of bills would extend more than 56 times higher than the orbiting International Space Station.
- It would reach more than halfway around planet Earth.
- That’s the equivalent of running 534 marathons.
- You could crisscross across the Sahara Desert almost five times.
