Apple doesn't have to answer to anybody. Not about innovation. Not about how it allocates its capital. And certainly not about how much of that cash it returns to shareholders. You don't like the company's strategy, buy another stock. I hear Intel ( INTC) looks pretty "cheap" right now with a "juicy" 4.2% yield. Heck, Microsoft ( MSFT) and Hewlett Packard ( HPQ) -- they're doing some real exciting stuff. And they're both "bargains," yielding 3.3% and 3.2%, respectively.
