Apple announced on Monday its plans for the almost $100 billion in cash that company has stockpiled over the years. This cash was accumulated through the sales of its popular iPad, iPod, and Macintosh computers. Apple plans on offering a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share starting in its fourther quarter as well as using $10 billion dollars to repurchase shares.

According to their press release:

 

Subject to declaration by the Board of Directors, the Company plans to initiate a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share sometime in the fourth quarter of its fiscal 2012, which begins on July 1, 2012.

Additionally, the Company’s Board of Directors has authorized a $10 billion share repurchase program commencing in the Company’s fiscal 2013, which begins on September 30, 2012. The repurchase program is expected to be executed over three years, with the primary objective of neutralizing the impact of dilution from future employee equity grants and employee stock purchase programs.


This program is anticipated to utilize approximately $45 billion over the next three years.

I think its a good thing for the share holders. I am one and have been a long time and I was waiting for this. Thats a great number for a Divigend.

If you buy 227 shares today,the dividend paymemt in the first quarter will be enough to buy a new Iphone. :)

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
