$ALLE has a five-year, $500MM revolving credit facility maturing on Oct. 15, 2020. $ALLE borrowed $400MM under the revolver during August 2015 to fund a portion of the acquisitions of SimonsVoss and AXA. An amount of $320MM of the outstanding revolver balance during Sept. 2015 was repaid by $ALLE.
Apple ($AAPL) reported decline in sales and profits from comparable quarter last year, attributing the decline to announcement of iPhone 7/7s. Sales and profit are being guided higher for next quarter. Apple is a solid company and will continue to dominate tech and consumer electronics segment for a while. Personally, looks like there is little downside in this investment.
Waiting with fingers crossed for $AAPL’s fourth quarter earnings.
