Yes, but if you read some articles, Apple never even used most of their most recent Buyback Capital they authorized. One reason their cash on the Balance Sheet is now up to $178 billion. By Sept. or June it will be over $200 billion cash, unheard of huge number, if they don't start buying back shares more aggressively. To answer your question, I think Apple's bought back only about 8 or 10% of its shares so far, which results in about 10% profit growth vs. when they first started the buybacks. But they started that in 2013, so only about 3 or 5% of profit growth vs. 2014 same quarter is from buybacks.
Will Master Bader please come to the Principles Office... I repeat, Master Bader come to the Principle's Office at once.
by Sept., even after buying back stock, AAPL wil have ver $200 billion cash. They cant buyback stock now without sending Aapl stock soaring.
i also sold bit at $119, but also at $109. ialso bought at $112, and as low as $35 in 2010. .What SheepHumpers not telling us is how many shares is he Short, n about to get reamed on?
Where's SheepHumper? He was laughing at longs today when AAPL stock was down, with his usual "See I told ya, rookies" #$%$. He won't be laughing tomorrow, unless he closed out his Short Positions today.
To inflict pain on him, to pee on him while walking on him with her high-heels.... so comparatively Tomorrow's Pain trying to close out his Short Positions, will feel good?
Will all the people who bashed Tim Cook calling him a Jew, or a Gay, as their excuse for why Apple Stock was supposedly no good, finally apologize to Tim Cook? Will the "WannaBeNaszi" who Darlalene finally outed giving address of some unemployed 32 year old in his mother's basement in California, will he finally crawl out from the basement and apologize for all the Anti-Semetic drivel he used to post on this Apple Board? Have the crazies who used to slander Apple's Management, will they finally move on to another more deserving stock to be pilloried?
They are not "DirtBags" they just happened to have a different opinion, preferring the dark side of things, and as it turned out SHEEP-Humper with his constant poking fun at longs, was WRONG.
See all those posts during the day, SheepSkinner was laughing at Longs. Well he's not laughing anymore.
Congrats to TAMERMOUS who has held AAPL stock since at least 2010, as I have. Even thru the dark days of later 2012-early 2013, when CNBC was trying to Hype Slander the stock down every day.
Analysts conservatively estimate only in the 70s millions Apple Phones Sold. ON OTHER HAND when compared vs. ANDROID phone totals, each Apple Phone Sold in $$ can be equal to up to 6 Android phones ! I bought 3 Android LG-90 phones TMobile Sept. 2014 for Family Plan at $99 each. No Contract ! Now I bought 1 Apple iPHONE6 for $749, larger screen model. Get my point. 70 Million Apple phones sold = 300 - 500 million Android phones, when adjusted for $$$ REVENUE per Phone. This is why Apple Stock is going to ROCK at earnings. This is why APPLE makes so much money per phone, vs. LG, HTC, Nokia, BBRY, even Samsung earns going down, and Lenovo makes almost nothing too per phone sold. The LOW COST ANDROID "Clone-Phones" are not making any money at low prices basically. And they don't work as well either. Not everyone can afford to pay so much for Apple phones, but the top 10 - 12% in China, and top half in USA that can, and top half in Japan, still makes tons TONS money for Apple.
guy scut the nonsense. Analysts estimates are only in the 70s millions Apple Phones Sold.

Plus I'd sold $112 Calls. Both expire Jan. 17. Am hoping I get the Stock PUT to me really cheaply later today, since Earns. coming Jan. 27th should be great... (I was going to say an Oil Gusher, but you understand why I won't recent news).
Huge Earns. coming Jan. 27, only two Tuesdays from now. Expected to be Apple's Best Quarter Ever. And to report 50% growth in Apps. sales, starting roll-out of Apple Pay, gains in Market Share in China and Japan, and continued buildup in Cash Hoard, despite stock buybacks.
