Yes! Finally! Someone who truly understands fiances! Or did you mean finance? No, you must have meant fiances... because you clearly know nothing about finance. Dividends are not a means to affect dramatic and sustained share price growth.
They typically provide a short-term improvement that roughly corresponds to the dividend increase itself... and does so at a price (namely FCF impairment incurred by the company in paying the dividend). If paying a dividend was truly a catalyst for share price, Apple would not be trading for less now than before it started paying a dividend.
True share price recovery will come from incremental performance and improved investor sentiment.
But the current stock price is not counting the money as if it actually exists. If the current valuation does not include the cash, and in fact does not include even the current earnings, then why would it drop?
