Is this too simplistic?
So Cook announced new products etc in the fall of 2013 and all across 2014. Assuming that is true would it make sense to expect to see the buyback program be heavily front loaded? At about 1.8 billion a month (58 billion over 32 months) that is about 12.5 million shares a quarter at current prices. Obviously they would want to buy back shares at the cheapest prices possible and Just looking for an indicator about what the following quarters will hold.
