10:04 EDTNOK, MSFT, SNE, ORCL, GOOG, AAPL, IBMFitch says Apple rating would likely fall in high single 'A' category
Fitch Ratings said it has not released a public rating on Apple (AAPL); such a rating would likely fall in the high single 'A' rating category. Fitch said, "We rate a handful of U.S. technology companies in the high 'A' or double 'A' range with a Stable Outlook, including Microsoft (MSFT) at AA+, IBM (IBM) at A+, and Oracle (ORCL) at A+. All three of these companies benefit from substantial recurring revenue from enterprise software and/or long-term IT services contracts, which typically carry high switching costs...For ratings in the 'AA' category, we would insist on higher visibility and a longer time horizon regarding the sustainability of a company's business model...Consumer product companies such as Sony (SNE), Nokia (NOK), and Motorola Mobility (GOOG) have proven the risks related to ever-changing consumer tastes, low switching costs, and a highly competitive environment. Each has historically had a dominant market position and strong financial metrics, only to falter over a relatively short period of time. Apple's better diversification and the stickiness of its iTunes ecosystem clearly make it a stronger credit that would likely be at the highest end of the 'A' category."
