A better play would be to kill the dividend and buy back shares, especially at this price... They should have never have reinstated the dividend and instead have bought back shares... At the current price, they could buy back 25 million shares a year... and if they dumped some extra cash into buying back shares, they could easily buy back 50 million shares a year at the current price... of course as they bought back shares the share price would rise.... but you get the picture...
They may but even if they don't they will shortly after and everybody knows they will but they just don't know how agressive Apple will be and that is the only question to ask at this point. As for new product that is comming as well but again the question is what and when and Apple is not going to say anything about future products until they are ready to introduce them for what should be obvious reasons.
No dividend announcement. They never announce things other than earnings. Some analyst said maybe later in the year. Said its all very complicated. If you greedy longs are lucky, they wont have a dividend increase and put the money into R&D or M&A instead. That's the stuff that will increase share price. Dividends decrease share price.
wish for an epic stock buyback announcement because I think that is what is needed....... the stock needs support, it needs buyers, it needs confidence and aapl has the balance sheet to provide those things.
