On Monday Apple finally announced its plans for how it would start using its huge $98 billion cash hoard. The company said it will begin paying investors a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share, and it will start a $10 billion share buyback program later this year. The two moves will total $45 billion over three years, The Post’s Cecilia Kang reports.
