Well, I guess any organisation should have some money for unexpected expenses. And any really large organisation, like a country government should probably have a lot.

But why would a publicly trading company like Apple need to keep a lot of money ? They are supposed to share their wealth with their shareholders.

(in a way the citizens of a country are also the shareholders of the government, atleast that is how I look at it)
