2 out of 10. Apple have said that sales for their products have decreased and have had to cut back, less staff for example. However, this Christmas was an excellent Christmas, in terms of ipod touch's sales. Millions were sold. So it's not very likely but Steve Jobs could soon resign as head of Apple so who knows... More

There is not too great a chance. They have about 34 billion in cash and cash equivelents, no debt. The giant companies you are referring to are so poorly managed that they actually deserved to fail. It is actually a crime that the government is using our money to save their sorry asses.

I agree with Muncie. They have very high cash and little debt so their chance of bankruptcy is near zero. They still have good, high, positive cash flow. They could certainly make mistakes and the company's fortunes, profitability, could definitely change but outright failure from this recession is very unlikely.
