    Buy back

    Not buying back shares at this level is an enormous red flag.

    • i don't think they have bought back one share in 2012 and are just now putting the people in place to execute this year old mandate as rumors persist the cfo will be fired in regards to this matter. what's wrong with this new untested management team?


      Apple has hired Xerox's chief financial officer in a move that some believe will see the company increase the dividend payment to shareholders, or even facilitate a share repurchase increase. The hire may also suggest that the company is preparing its finance team to fill the void left should 50-year-old Peter Oppenheimer leave the company.

      Luca Maestri is to leave his post as CFO of Xerox at the end of February to become corporate controller of Apple. While this looks like a demotion, some reports indicate that Maestri is likely to eventually replace Peter Oppenheimer."

    • Like Traderdave said, do some Due Dilligence...there is a share buyback already in effect.
      The info is On Line ... Googe "Apple Share buyback" ... it will take you to the Apple website page with the info.

      During the upcoming Earnings report, I would like to hear some report on that. Also an increase or acceleration would be good also.

    • only rumors of buying. hopefully this evidence comes out at the trial on wednesday.

      "November 15, 2012 1:30 PM EST

      Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is ticking higher amid Doug Kass saying there is buyback chatter.

      According to his Twitter account (@DougKass): "Vague rumors of an accelerated buyback at Apple this afternoon."

      We're sure the rumor didn't start with Kass.

      Shares are down about 1 percent Thursday afternoon."

      "“What do you know about this share buyback business?” the King said to Alice.

      “Nothing,” said Alice.

      “Nothing whatever?” persisted the King.

      “Nothing whatever,” said Alice.

      “That’s very important,” the King said, turning to the jury."

        "Investors also expect Apple to follow through on a promised $10 billion stock buy-back program.

        "If the company is not buying back at this level, I think it's absurd and suggests that something is seriously wrong with the company," said Mark Mulholland, manager of the Matthew 25 fund, which has about 17 percent of its holdings in Apple."
