Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is down 1.1% today which could be related to repatriation talk following a Donald Trump victory. Trumps has proposed a 10% repatriation tax, which would be enforced if the company brings the money back or not. However. as StreetInsider explained in a Nov. 4th article, Apple has two lumps of overseas cash: one lump is $106 billion, which the company has taken a deferred tax liability of $31.4 billion on its books. The other lump is $109.8 billion, which it hasn't paid tax on yet but estimates an unrecognized deferred tax of $35.9 billion.

Apple may not be able to pay the 10% on the entire amount, just the second lump of overseas cash, according to tax experts.
