    More debt to buyback shares and subsidise an increase in the dividend .
    Total debt at present $36B plus $15B in the works = $50B
    Only Wall st could se that as positive !

    A lot of that debt is from its Global Financing, its not 'Core debt'. IBM has more cash and ST investments than core debt on its books if you look a little closer at its balance sheet.

    the dividend wasn't raised, it was $0.95 last time. It will probably be raised 2 quarters from now if history is any indication.
