In this video, analyst Andrew Tonner talks about Apple's earnings report, which is due next week. The story is certainly the most important in the tech sector, as Apple's stock has been crashing this year.

Andrew focuses on Apple's dividend policy from the upcoming earnings report, as the company is expected to raise its payout on Tuesday. That would not only get investors the return they were waiting for, but it's also likely to improve Apple's share price. Apple's sitting on a $137 billion cash pile and can easily fund a significant dividend increase.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company has been looking at various policies for investors, including an issue of preferential shares. Andrew says it's important not just for Apple to take this step, but to do it on Tuesday.
