Apple to buy Tesla (500 billion), Disney (180 billion), Peloton(4.5 billion), Soccer team(7.5 billion).

History of Apple acquisitions: #1 most expensive acquisition, Beats for 3 billion dollars. It was suggested by some to be overpaying but Apple had a big need to both advance their music streaming offer and their earbud design capability. Beats gave both. It was a very strategic acquisition that had a plan to pay off many times over.
So Apple that is almost frugal with acquisitions will pay 250% of the Beats cost to acquire a soccer team? Lol, Apple is being used as the anonymous or not so anonymous deep pocket for negotiators to get more out of whoever is an actual buyer.
