Microsoft: $40B Isn't A Lot

After the close, Microsoft (MSFT) announced a sizable $40 billion share buyback. The amount sounds massive until realizing the stock is worth over $1 trillion. Even if Microsoft utilized all $40 billion in the next year, the amount would only repurchase 4% of the outstanding shares. 

Remember that Apple approved $75 billion in share repurchases back in April. The company has a much larger capital return plan as viewed via the Net Payout Yield. 

Don't own Microsoft for the capital returns. Own the stock due to growth justifying the current pricey stock.
