Terrible idea. Apple stock would be lower 1 m onth after the news of something like this. Apple would be following in the exact steps of all other former great growth companies. When they stop innovating, the games begin like buying back stock and over paying for other companies that are considered innovative. If Apple bouht back this many shares, it would be like them yelling from the roof top - " We are out of ideas, no innovation coming."
Republicans agree to millionare tax! Aapl & US markets should soar on Monday. China good sales news. If buyback announce or special dividend then even better. Short squeeze of all short squeezes next week.
