Is Apple bribing investors?

March 19th was a great day for Wall Street, for technology business, for S&P 500 index and for generally exhausted from uncertainty in this crisis investor. On that day Apple announced it will pay dividends and will buy back some shares in a 3-years operation that will cost billions of dollars.
