Apple's Dividend Yield Could Reach 4.9% by 2015

In case you missed it, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) boosted its share repurchase program by a whopping $50 billion. This means Apple could reduce shares outstanding by 15% by the time the program ends in 2015. What would this do to Apple's dividend yield? In the following video, Fool contributor Daniel Sparks says that investors who buy shares today could be rewarded with a nice 4.9% dividend yield at cost basis by the end of fiscal 2015.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains.
