stanandterri, a simple view. Multiply the dividend by 10% since they would be buying back about 10% of their shares.
Maybe a little more thatn 10% now that their market cap is 14.4 Billion.
Share buy back is up to 1.5 Billion.
But who knows if they will buy back as much as they can at once or spread it out over a year?
If it were me, I would just buy back now.
Based on the earnings last Q as well, factor in your base dividend this quarter will be .45 or .40 before factoring in the buy back.
