Dividends and Apple moves production to China

For a number of years President Trump the president who loves tariffs to encourage manufacturing in the US has failed in convince Apple to manufacture. Apple announced in late June it is moving production of the MacPro from Austin to China

According to an article by Cade Metz of The New York Times New Service, the MacPro sells for $6,000 and is only a small portion of Apple’s overall sales

Apple CEO Tim Cook in 2012 said the company would make computers in the US. Things have changed although the product was designed and engineered in California and final assembly is only one part of the manufacturing process.

Linking to dividend paying stocks, it is very difficult not to manufacture in China even though the President disagrees.

There are more questions than answers, till the next time – to raising questions.
