Is a Dividend Boost Around the Corner for Apple?


Apple is rumored to be increasing its quarterly dividend to $4.14, for a yield of 3.7%. That's given the stock a boost, but the focus for investors should still be the long-term fundamentals of the company. With investors getting a value similar to that of PC-dependent Microsoft , all Apple has to do is wow us with another product launch, which may be easier said than done.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
