Could Apple buy Disney?
It would be a huge deal, worth hundreds of billions of dollars — and that's what analysts are speculating about on Thursday.
Research from RBC Capital Markets says such a merger would produce a "tech/media juggernaut like no other" — the combination of the biggest tech company in the world and a near-century-old cultural titan.
"The resultant company would be massive, with enough cash and balance sheet capacity to change the nature of the hardware, service, and content industries," the analysts wrote in a note to investors.
"If there’s a deal out there that would strike fear in the hearts of Silicon Valley and Hollywood, this could be it."
But where is this speculation coming from? And how likely is it, really?
