In this chapter's opening vignette, we discussed Apple's decision to establish a dividend payout policy in 2012 and its subsequent decisions to increase quarterly dividends and raise its repurchase program to $175 billion. Let's find out what has happened to Apple's (AAPL) dividend policy since the time of its original announcement. We can address this issue by relying on data provided on internet financial websites such as Yahoo! Finance, Morningstar.com, Google Finance, and MSN Money (www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets). You will have to use a combination of these sites to answer these questions. 5. Investors are more concerned with future dividends than historical dividends.

(Your answer will only be a guess based on current data.)
