Tim Cook's Message to Customers, Apple's Large Debt Sale, New Spotify Subscriber Data

Today's Above Avalon stories: 

  • Tim Cook's Message to Customers
  • Apple's Large Debt Sale
  • New Spotify Subscriber Data

We kick off today's email by discussing Tim Cook's message to Apple customers regarding security. The FBI wants Apple to "build a backdoor to the iPhone." This is the start of a long discussion that will play out over months and years. It's important not to miss the obvious reasons behind Cook's message. We then shift over to Apple's $12 billion debt sale. In addition to going over the deal, we compare this raise to previous Apple debt issuances in terms of quantity and investor attractiveness. The email concludes with a look at new Spotify subscriber data and two observations from recent trends.
