The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser, James Early, and Ron Gross.
In this segment, hedge fund manager David Einhorn sued Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) in federal court this week, saying management needs to do more to unlock shareholder value. Since Apple has $137 billion in cash on the balance sheet, Einhorn is pushing for preferred shares of stock with a 4% dividend. While Apple disagrees with the plan, it has spurred the company to begin to look at taking action on its balance sheet cash. The guys discuss Apple's options in deploying capital back to shareholders.
