That's the amount Apple should be returning to shareholders... Each quarter's free cash flow should go directly to shareholders via divi hike and buyback. They can do $10 billion of each. By years end they would return $80 billion which would cause the stock to soar to highs never imagined. The stock splits would come every year because the stock price would run to the thousands. They can maintain the $140 plus billion they have today and never touch it. Unless they want to make any acquisitions.
