According to the methodology used in the report, long-term investments were not included, leaving Apple with approximately $30.16 billion in cash and short-term investments, compared with $138.68 billion in assets. These numbers show that Apple’s cash holdings represent 22 percent of total assets, far below the top tech company Altera, which stands at over 80 percent.
