Microsoft: share buyback program up to 40 billion

In addition to an increased dividend of 5 cents from the previous quarter, Microsoft announced a program of share buyback up to 40 billion dollars.

In addition to an increased dividend of 5 cents from the previous quarter, Microsoft announced a program of share buyback up to 40 billion dollars.

Microsoft seems to get into a seduction operation to its shareholders who are pampered at this time. On its website, the editor of Redmond announced that the amount of the quarterly dividend will reach 0.28 $ per share, an increase of five percent (22%).

"This reflects our desire to redistribute as much money for our shareholders," says Amy Hood, chief financial officer of Microsoft. Gifts not stop there for shareholders: The Board of Directors approved a share repurchase program of up to 40 billion dollars.

The future program will take effect in place of the one that runs until November 30, which was the same amount of 40 billion dollars. In contrast, the new purchase plan has no expiration date. Financial markets seem to greet the New, since the action is up slightly since the opening of trading at almost 33 dollars.


At Apple, while the stock has lost nearly 10% since the day of the announcement of the new iPhone 5S and 5C, is also considering a plan to buy back shares. In late August, the U.S. billionaire Carl Icahn, who gave up buying the Dell manufacturer, said: "I talked to Tim [Cook, Apple's boss, Ed]. We plan to dine in September. Tim is good for share repurchases and leads. This is the extent [of the share repurchase program] will be discussed. "
