The market sure likes Apple’s intention to announce what, if anything, it does with its $100B+ cash hoard. I am hoping Apple does its own fund to help encourage Apps developers and other ecosystem players, such as the Kliener Perkins iFund.
The rational side of me thinks a stock buy back/dividend is more likely at the opening of trading on a Monday, however.
Update: It looks like the rational side wins.
