i think thats whats going to happen
there will not be a dividend increase, however they may have another small buyback.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
almost certainly...buyback/divy increase will soften the blow of earnings miss
That seems like the plan. Just pray for no special dividend. That will be death knell for stock price.
No dividend payment can return growth to Apple, only grow can. I wish Apple won't waste cash on paying dividends.
Dividend isn't a good thing for a growth stock. It signals the market that its growth is over. Just look at what the stock was trading at and what its PE was when it first announced dividend last year.
If there is an div announcement then mid first week of April.
now that its passed the anniversary date and coming up on end of QTR, probably so....
