Apple to dish out $100 billion to shareholders
NEW YORK (AP) -- Apple is opening the doors to its bank vault, saying it will distribute $100 billion in cash to its shareholders over two years. At the same time, the company said it expects sales for the current quarter to fall from the year before, which would be the first decline in many years.
Apple Inc. on Tuesday said it will buy back $60 billion in shares - the largest buyback authorization in history. It is also raising its dividend by 15 percent.
