These 10 Companies Have The Most Cash In The World And When Combined Have More Than A Half Trillion Dollars



The 10 most cash rich companies in the world:

1.) Apple
2.) Microsoft
3.) Google
4.) Verizon
5.) Samsung
6.) Cisco
7.) Volkswagen
8.) Toyota
9.) Oracle
10.) Pfizer

What's next:

1.) Technology is the most cash rich. And by a long shot. Total cash in the technology sector is $775 billion. The next largest is consumer discretionary. That's at $448 billion.

2.) It's no longer a field completely dominated by American companies.  Both Volkswagen, Toyota, and Samsung accumulated huge piles of cash and are challenging American companies.

3.) The amount of cash on balance sheets is at record highs. When will this cash come off balance sheets and actually be used? How will it be used? Will the U.S. government lighten its tax rules for company's holding cash overseas? These are the most important questions right now.
