Sell Treasuries, Buy Apple

In addition to being one of America's favorite companies, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) has long been considered one of the better investments available in the market. During the company's last earnings release, Apple announced a new capital plan to return $100 billion to investors by the end of 2015. This will be accomplished through an increased dividend and share buyback program that will include the sale of debt instruments to offset certain tax issues. Given this announcement, Apple now offers investors both yield and security through either equity or debt.

In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the reasons behind the debt offering and how Apple stacks up against the U.S. government.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
