    The recent rally is still being led higher by all things Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Monday was no exception as the company will payout a $2.50 dividend and buyback $10 billion of the outstanding shares. They say they're still committed to product innovation but that still remains to be seen. After all, their visionary leader is gone, and beyond tinkering with improvements here and there, we'll have to see if there are any breakthrough products on the horizon.
