Apple Q4 2011 by the numbers

So that the stock would be more attractive if I got something out of it every quarter or even every year. That $81 billion in the bank does nothing for shareholders.

But why would apple care about giving out dividends? Its basically like giving out money they could use to expand the company. Apple can use that money to buy patents, and buyout other companies that would be of use to them. With 81B in cash... You wouldn't want to push your disrespects with Apple. Due to the fact that they could buyout the company with a snap of a finger. Basically they are doing the smart thing. Using the money to expand their company, and focusing on their inner growth.

Why? Because it would pay a huge divident most likely. It would make the stock and even better investment, attracting more of my money and more investor money to Apple (not that they really need it right now). But a dividend by Apple would pay a percentage of earnings to shareholders (people who own the stock) which would further allow you to take additional earnings or reinvest into more Apple stock. It would be a win-win for everyone I think, but that's just my opinion.

It's gotta be more than 25 million iOS devices sold. Count your iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. That comes to over 30 million right??!

Not sure what Wall Street's greed problem is but those numbers sound like a helluva lot of success from the only Tech company making consistent quarterly profits and who hasn't fired or laid anyone off since the recession began.

Not a greed issue. if the analysts say X then the stock price ahead of the call gets a number that is baked into expectation X. Then people estimate that number out for years. Its all baked in when the cc call happens. They miss X by a small amount, then it all comes off. Stock is still over $400 and they still have no debt and 81B is cash. Bet next cc will be better if the overall economy does not crash.

Forgot to mention that Apple fiscal year revenue topped $100 billion for the first time.
Also interesting that it took 10 years for 16 billion songs to be downloaded through iTunes, but only 3 years for 18 billion apps to be downloaded from the App Store. (I wonder how many of those apps were paid apps...)
