Will Apple's plan to buy back its own shares be profitable for the company in the long term future?

  • Yes it will be.

    Apple's plan to buy back its own shares will be profitable for the company in the long term future. While this will be something that is profitable in the long term, it will be very difficult to accomplish as most people will continue to hold onto those shares and not sell them.

  • They will have more control.

    Yes, Apple's plan to buy back its own shares will be profitable for the company in the long term future, because it will allow Apple to have enough control to produce the next technology. If Apple is controlled by people who are not knowledgeable in technology, it will be hard to steer the company in the right direction.

  • No, a buyback is irrelevant



    When fewer shares divide up the profits of a company, each
    share is allotted a greater amount of profit. So having fewer shares of Apple
    stock and therefore more earnings per share will not mean that Apple is earning
    more money. Share buybacks can be accounting tricks; ones that make earnings
    appear to grow when they are actually stagnant. What Apple really needs to do is
    continue to innovate, and continue to brand its products as ideal for creative
    and successful people. If people keep buying Apple devices, any buyback will be
    irrelevant.


  • It's Hard To Say

    I believe it is hard to say whether Apple's plan to buy back its own shares will be profitable for the company in the long term future. I believe with Jobs gone we're all still looking to Apple to see what they're going to do next, if anything. I would say their stock is still up in the air, as is the future of the company.

  • No, Apples plan to buy back shares will not be profitable.

    In the long run, I do not think that Apple's plan to buy back its own shares will be very profitable for the company at all. The shares are at a high level right now, so the company would have to dramatically increase its revenue in order for them to make a profit.
