Top 10 U.S. Companies By Amount Of Cash Held

by Felix Richter,

Last week, reports surfaced that Apple had considered buying Time Warner last year before ultimately deciding against it.

The acquisition would have given Apple access to a number of high-profile media brands including HBO and CNN and a content library that could have provided a huge boost to the often-rumored Apple TV subscription service.

Very few companies in the world could have even considered acquiring a company of Time Warner's size. But to Apple, the $60+ billion price tag would not have been a problem. As our chart below illustrates, Apple still holds a vast amount of cash and would still be the most cash-heavy company in the United States, even if it had gone through with the acquisition.

This chart shows the American companies with the largest cash holdings.
