Figuring out what they will do with all that money!


Yup, its just a fad, that's totally insignificant and they'll be done in 2 years  ::)

I'm sure Apple is smart enough to know what to do with $100 billion. isn't their net worth  about $600 billion or so

They could invest like 10billion in curing aging (life extension sciences, generally), so they could enjoy the rest 90 for a lot longer than they'll be able to with a current average lifespan. Actually - all of that money means nothing, as most of these people who control 'em are already in the middle age, and will be 6 foot under the ground like 20-30 years (if they are lucky in the gene department) from now..

I'm not trying to figure it out dumb ass, Apple is trying to figure out what they will do with it, that's why they had a big conference call with shareholders today explaining their strategy for the future.

Apples fortune was build on Steve Job's genius as an innovator - with him gone they will be unable to come up with the next generation technology and simply go down the Motorola way.

They're alchemists that can polish a turd into a diamond. I also don't think they need any help managing their assets.

I don't like their products but they know their business better than anyone by leaps and bounds. Even an Apple hater like me can't do anything but admire that shit.

What to do with the billions?

More than likely the board will approve a large one time dividend to shareholders. Furthermore, they will issue a share repurchase plan. Both have been discussed in their Q10 filings numerous times.

Maybe the Thieves will give it back!, how do you think these companies get so rich, they steal from the Ignorant Massess, who are buying nothing superior technologically, but are paying huge markups! These CEO's must laugh all the way to the bank, they get some poor sap on one side of the globe to make the goods for less than $20 and then they get some poor sap on the other side of the globe to pay $500 for it.  All while never leaving the comfort of their Ultra Mansion!  Amazing what some Pink and Purple paint can do!

And do you think the Homos, metrosexuals and effeminate men have any shame that they made Apple so rich!
I think Not!

What are you talking about?  Apple computers are virus free.  I mean I spent $600 for my 17 Dell Studio 3 years ago, and I haven't had a virus with the assistance of Google Chrome and Adware, not one infection and lost of datum.  I could have done better if I had given Apple $2500 for a 17 in laptop if I had listen to Bay and the other fan boys on getbig.

Apple attracts the non technical who like pretty things, i have used PC's for 30 years and haven't had many problems, and any i had where easily fixed.  Apple isn't as prone to viruses and the like as they don't have the market share and aren't as popular target for hackers and virus code writers.  Anyway for those in the know, Apples are just a good balance of the technology on the market, they are far from the best and their margeting strategy is aimed at the fashion conscious!  To serious computer users, Apples are like the gaybar of Computers! Real men build their own PC's and customise them they way they want - here is one of my Rig's - Fuck Apple!

That's a nice rig E-Kul, and you're right--to a certain extent apple is a fashion accessory. However their software is very user friendly, not loaded with bloatware, and as someone said-- not virus prone (whether it's due to not being a target or not; it matters not to the consumer). Apple comps always come with a wide array of useful software right out of the box! PC has followed suit. This is the appeal to people that don't buy them to be trendy. (I've known a lot of people that admitted to living beyond their means yet holding on to their Apple phone because it's 'very important in order to look professional'.

I know, I am overly critical of Apple, as i was introduced to PC's early, my Dad was an Engineer and we had a Tandy TRS-80, moved on to IBM 286,386,486 as a teen owned Commodore Amigas and our crappy technical School back in the late 80's had a British Model Computer called a BBC who eventually went bankrupt - I remember as a teen being attracted to the few Macs I saw getting around but never could justify the expense.  I was pulling aprt computers as soon as i could and I used to work in a big Auction House selling ex-government tech equipment, and liquidated businesses etc etc..   I pretty much have seen it all in terms of computers, i come from a technical family and all the men in the family are technical geeks of some sort, my brother is a highly qualified draftsmen and a master operater of the software Solidworks.  My Father prior to that was a pioneer in CAD in his company and introduced and trained people in this field.  Anyway, it is the very reason Apples are popular to most that they are not attractive to me.  The fact they come pre-installed with a heap of software is a turn off, I like to control everything from the very onset, from Operating System Install to the software installed afterwards, but I am a tech guy and after 20 years in Computers I am about to get out of Computers to pursue another path - I have a very Strong Love Hate relationship with Computers, I am the local goto Guy for repairs and pc builds - I am tired of it though, I get calls at all hours, all so some guy can get his computer running again and finish his wank!

If ANYBODY THINKS bILL gATES IS ANY SORT OF GOOD GUY, WELL HIS WELL PAID MEDIA CAMPAIGN HAS WORKED. Bill Gates is such a crook, his own government tried unsuccesfully to sue him.  All his charitable foundations are so he can buy a peace prize. If you think the worlds richest man cares one hoot about other people - you have succesfully been sold Propoganda.  The Elite have been paying for your mind for years and you dont even know it!  This Poster thinks Bill Gates cares!

Ok, so it's better to hold on to the money and/or give it to stock holders. Epic logic!

Who the FUCK cares how the money goes to a good cause - as long as it happens. That's just being a hypocrite.

So, perhaps you can compare the two below and tell me how Apple's approach is better:

- Gates: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_%26_Melinda_Gates_Foundation
- Apple: give money to stock holders instead of charities

True enough.

Considering the announcement yesterday - the dividend, the buyback & the stock hitting new highs....

... you have to ask yourself - what is left in the bad to make this sucker go higher?

My guess is - we've just seen (or will see in the next couple of weeks) the all time high for Apple.

The dumbest thing they can do is buy back shares when they are at a high. Fuckwits.
