    Dividend versus Buyback

    There's yet another SA article saying MU management would be crazy not to do a big buyback.

    I disagree.

    If MU is at $20 per share with no dividend, and MU were to announce a $1.00 per share annual dividend, this would yield 5%. If the market then jumped the stock on the good news to yield 3% (still very nice), MU would be priced at $33.33 or a gain of over 66%!

    A 5% buyback would leave the dividend at zero and the stock with a value of around $21.
