【谷歌母公司成为全世界现金最多的公司】

【谷歌母公司成为全世界现金最多的公司】十年来首次,Apple手头的现金数量并不是世界第一。据英国“金融时报”报道,这条接力棒已转移到谷歌母公司Alphabet手中,该公司目前的现金净额为1170亿美元,而苹果公司的净现金为1020亿美元。这并不意味着Alphabet的表现远远超过Apple,这更多是两家公司之间不同战略的问题。苹果公司在2017年创下了1630亿美元的创纪录收入,而之后该公司将部分资金用于股票回购和股息,有效地减少了现金数量。

Alphabet dethrones Apple as the most cash-rich company

For the first time in a decade, Apple is not the world leader in terms of how much cash it has on hand.

The baton has passed to Google parent company Alphabet, which now has $117 billion net cash, compared to Apple's $102 billion, the Financial Timesreported Thursday.

This does not mean Alphabet has been doing vastly better than Apple; it's more a matter of different strategies between the companies. Apple, which in 2017 held a record $163 billion, has been reducing its cash mound on purpose, starting with the introduction of a tax reform that year which made it easier for multinational giant corporations to repatriate the cash they had overseas. The company used some of the money on stock buybacks and dividends, effectively reducing its cash position.

Alphabet has been doing something similar but to a far lesser extent, and not all of its shareholders have been too happy about it. The FT says Alphabet has added $25 billion to its stock buyback program last week, which should help alleviate some pressure from the shareholders, though one analyst FT spoke with says this won't be enough to actually reduce the company's cash reserves.
