    Microsoft may issue $2-3 special dividend ??

    almsot 70 billions of cah in the bank, and this cash is gwoing by some 20-30 billions each year, and MFT does not need much money, and it is not a caital intensive industry, so surely they should look into either or both special dividend and stock buy back. What is the fun of lettign 70 billions sitting somewhere making close to 1%, other than helping the US government financing its debts? I would help the shareholders first and most, and most employees are also shareholders.

    Based on MSft histry, MSFt has always distributed its pile of cash to shareholders either by special dividened and stock buyback. At this point, when the shares are trading like dirt, it is way smarter to buy the shares for cancelleation. Once shares are trading higher than 33, then back to dividend.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
