Dividends4Life: Will An Apple Dividend Increase Push Stocks Higher?

When it comes to the S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC) , not all stocks are created equal. It should be no surprise, in turn, that Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) is the single most important index on the component. While its market cap has come down considerably over the past six months, even temporarily dipping below ExxonMobil's (NYSE: XOM ) a few weeks ago, it's still the largest company in the United States.

So it's not just Apple investors who should be hoping the company's board approves a dividend increase in the near future. Assuming it does so (and most believe it will), and assuming the move pushes up the stock price (which also seems to follow logically), then the proverbial proceeds will be felt by all, in light of Apple's inordinate presence on the most followed index in the world.
