Apple links: dividend day
- March 19th, 2012
In case you missed it earlier today Apple ($AAPL) announced a regular dividend, stock buyback and also announced 3 million “new” iPads sold over the weekend. In short a big day by all accounts. And the stock did what it seems to always do – go up. We have accumulated a number of links that come at Apple from all angles. We didn’t want to overwhelm tomorrow’s linkfest with them so here they hot off the Interweb.
