How will Apple investors react to a dividend boost?

It may seem unusual to think of Apple (AAPL 0.17%) as a dividend stock, but that may be the stock's inevitable destiny. Already, Apple's dividend yield is approaching 3%, and that's before a likely significant dividend boost that many analysts are predicting.

If Apple does increase its dividend, how will it affect the stock over the long haul? As Fool contributor Daniel Sparks discusses with's Erin Miller, a shift in sentiment from a growth investment to an income investment could boost the price.
