    Intel's dividend is 4.5%, Intel makes $$ buying back stock with debt.

    The interesting thing is Intel can keep doing this every couple of years...

    Bernanke has signaled lower interest rates at least till late 2014 or early 2015...but I think they are just buying time and lower interest will continue well into the next decade considering the Chinese economy overheating, Eurozone troubles, etc.

    The problem I see is that these buybacks get re-issued for executive compensation instead of being retired. A clear case of management acting in their own interest and not in the interest of shareholders. If there is a 70/30 allocation between "stocks being retired/executive compensation", I think there is scope to believe that both interests are fairly aligned. There should be some mechanism for stockholders to be able to put something like this in place.
