Dividend Raise is Eminent .. Apple is Awaiting Executive & Board Share purchases before announcing..
The Mandatory Share purchase apple instituted Feb 6th of 3X annual salary for all executives, 5X for board members, and 10X for Tim Cook should take about a month to execute. It may take longer if some executives required a loan to purchase the shares. I'm guessing apple will not announce a dividend raise until Earnings call to make sure all the employees have the shares in place. a doubling of the dividend to 5% more than will make up for them having to purchase 3X their salary.. Nice incentive!
