Course overview
In this video, we take a deep dive into Apple's record-breaking $110 billion buyback announcement, exploring what it means for investors and the company's future. We explain the mechanics of buybacks, how they can boost stock prices and return cash to shareholders, and why Apple's move demonstrates its strong financial position.

However, we also examine the potential downsides, such as concerns about Apple's growth prospects, reliance on iPhone sales, and the opportunity cost of not investing in long-term initiatives. Ultimately, the essay concludes that while the buyback is a bold move that benefits shareholders in the short term, investors must carefully weigh the pros and cons and consider the long-term implications for Apple's future in a rapidly evolving tech landscape.
