When Will Apple Pay a Dividend?

Posted by D4L | Friday, February 24, 2012 | | 0 comments »

“Apple dividend” are the two magical words investors are aching to hear. How long will it be until they are satisfied? While I wouldn’t hold my breath, the rumor mill has produced some interesting evidence to suggest the day may be coming sooner rather than later. With roughly $98 billion in cash and liquid short-term investments on hand there’s really no limit to what Apple could do. But that’s just it, Apple has not applied it or earmarked it for anything noteworthy, or anything at all for that matter. So why not dividends? And why not now?

“No company in its right mind would keep $100 billion lying around. But then, as I’ve been arguing frequently of late, Apple is no normal company. It does just about everything differently, including how it socks away its money,” writes Adam Lashinsky, Sr. Editor at Fortune. A nice snippet of information has emerged from UBS’s wealth management group: Apple is polling large shareholders on the subject of paying out dividends.
