Is what I hope to see is a steady increase in the dividend for Apple common shareholders, that maybe announced at the next meeting or earnings report.
About offshore cash, I hope Apple may want to spend a little of the offshore cash every so often instead of borrowing money. For example, if Apple has $15 billion more offshore cash accumulate this quarter, maybe they should repatriate half of the $15 billion and pay the 30 or so percent tax instead of adding another $15 billion to the $90 billion or so of offshore cash. The reason not to borrowing money is that the new dept or preferred dividends would cause more of a need to repatriate the $100 or so billion offshore cash in the future. In the future the repatriation tax maybe higher or lower, more likely higher considering the government's urge to avoid 'sequester' cuts on spending.
uh oh, right in your back yard too.
No one is talking about any kind of reverse split.. I am talking about this stock straight up reaching $3 pps for 5 consecutive days on its own and then uplisting to the NASDAQ... No reserse split needed here..
A recent change in the listing requirements for the NASDAQ Capital Market gives more small-cap companies the opportunity to uplist to the senior exchange.
On April 18, the Securities and Exchange Commission approved an alternative to the $4 initial listing bid price requirement for the NasdaqCM. The rule change is meant to level the playing field between the NASDAQ Stock Market and its main competitor, the NYSE Amex. Prior to the rule change, the NYSE Amex required companies to have a minimum stock price of $2 to $3, while the NasdaqCM required a price of $4. As a result, numerous small-cap stocks trading between $2 and $4 were shut out of the NasdaqCM. According to the NASDAQ Stock Market’s proposal, filed in January, “A number of companies have indicated a preference to initially list on the Capital Market instead of NYSE Amex and have expressed frustration at their inability to do so without reverse splitting their stock.”
Under the new NasdaqCM requirements, a stock can qualify for listing if it closes at $3 or above for at least five consecutive business days prior to approval. The five-day requirement is in place to reduce the risk of price manipulation aimed at allowing a security to qualify for listing. In addition to the $3 share price requirement, the company must meet the following requirements:
■Stockholders’ equity of at least $5 million
■Market value of publicly held shares of at least $15 million
■Two years of operating history
■Net income from continuing operations of $750,000 in the most recently completed fiscal year or in two of the three most recently completed fiscal years
■Stockholders’ equity of at least $4 million
■Market value of publicly held shares of at least $5 million.
Securities with a $2 minimum closing price for five consecutive business days prior to the approval can also qualify for listing on the NasdaqCM if they meet the Market Value of Listed Securities Standard, which requires a market value of listed securities of at least $50 million, stockholders’ equity of at least $4 million, and a market value of publicly held shares of at least $15 million
In addition, companies must demonstrate that they have more than $2 million in net tangible assets if they have been in continuous operation for at least three years, or more than $5 million if they’ve been in continuous operation for less than three years. A company must also have average revenue of at least $6 million for the past three years. All other requirements for listing on the Capital Market are the same or higher than those of the NYSE Amex. A copy of the NASDAQ Stock Market’s original proposal is available on the SEC website.
With the new requirements, the NASDAQ Stock Market becomes more competitive with the NYSE Amex, and emerging growth companies now have another avenue to benefit from the increased exposure, liquidity, and access to capital that comes with uplisting to a senior exchange. As would be expected, two companies that RedChip helped uplist, L & L Energy (NASDAQ: LLEN) and Longwei Petroleum (NYSE Amex: LPH), both saw substantial valuation gains after moving to senior exchanges. Other RedChip clients that could qualify for uplisting over the next 6 to 12 months include ChromaDex Corp. (OTC BB: CDXC), a natural products company and producer of the dietary supplement BluScience; First Surgical Partners Inc. (OTC BB: FSPI), a dividend-paying operator of ambulatory surgical centers; and Cross Border Resources, Inc. (OTC QX: XBOR), an oil and gas company operating in the Permian Basin.

YMB what a wonderful, glitch free program, eh? lol
So you're doing good, good! Acad, I will wait out this retracement I think we are beginning to enter inot. I would like to see this hit the $5.10-20 area. It just might. The dow will definitely lose another 150 points at least! That would be the first rebound level and it isn't too far away. If it breaks through there, who nows - possible 700 more points down over a month. I guess this is where you news guys take about this week and the acrross the board 20% reduction. What I don;t like is since we recovered from the lows of 08, we recovered on MUCH lower volume traded (5 yr chart). That just not seem right. I think another 1000 point retracement (we had 2 others) is at the door. We got a 1/4 of that yesterday (if you count the high).
I will watch Imuc - looks like it will have at least a 6% -10%drop before it moves up.
Thanks for the TN research. No hope lost here:) My doctor told me under Obamacare, it si going to cost a family of 4 20k per year! ouch! I told him after the family pays that, they will be in the pvoerty level. Ain't it nice getting more cost efficient health care? lol
Why don't you tell us how YOU really feel: Is there ANYONE..like your mother that YOU like...Man, YOU are the most negative person on this board.Must be your Atheist upbringing....
