With Apple’s earnings declining, emphasis is on returning cash to investors

Late in January, I predicted why earnings contractions were coming for Apple in 2013. And since that time, Apple has indeed shown back-to-back quarters of earnings decline, with the announced earnings yesterday much lower than in the comparable quarter in 2012. This will be the new reality for Apple for quite a while, one reason the company must continue returning money to shareholders.
