Stocks in this article: AAPL





NEW YORK, March 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Investor Uprising, the individual investor's resource for global business trends and investment ideas, highlighted Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) in its weekly coverage of big investment trends.

On Monday, Apple announced its first shareholder dividend and a $10 billion share buyback. Investor Uprising's analysis of the dividend found that it was a great added benefit to shareholders, it not enough of a reason to buy Apple after its recent significant run-up. The story can be read here ( http://bit.ly/iuapple).

"Apple continues to be a monster stock, and keeps capturing the imaginations of everyone from retail investors to the largest hedge funds," said Investor Uprising Editor in Chief R. Scott Raynovich. "While the dividend is a great shareholder bonus, the news about it is already built into the stock and isn't likely to drive the share price from here. Apple is one of the companies on the Investor Uprising Index of 25 companies with favorable investment metrics, so we'll continue to cover all issues Apple."

That coverage includes critical analysis of the company's products and policies, like the commentary Investor Uprising's Community Editor Noreen Seebacher wrote on Thursday. The post, "Calling for Help After the iPhone Update," questioned Apple's policy of automating software updates for iPhone users.

"Apple insists on releasing super-duper software updates designed to make my iPhone faster, smarter, and even more entertaining," wrote Seebacher. "But in reality, the updates don't address the issues I have with the phone and invariably seem to create new ones."
