Apple is now the world's biggest dividend payer with its $13 billion dividend payout and surpasses ExxonMobil's dividend payout record. Despite the slight reduction in the number of iPhone sales in the most recent quarter 2017Q1, Apple CEO Tim Cook looks forward to releasing iPhone X as a brand-new smart phone revolution.

This new product will carry proprietary technologies such as OLED curvy touch screen, facial recognition, wireless charging service, and artificial intelligence.

In addition, Apple plans to initiate sequential share repurchases of at least $200 billion by 2020.

In the next few years, the world's biggest tech giant is likely to expand its media service revenue with the financial trifecta of massive dividend payout, share buyback, and offshore cash repatriation.

This financial trifecta will enable Apple to attract better dividend clienteles of long-run institutional investors with American focus on supply chain automation, domestic job creation, intellectual capital innovation, and even some further acquisition of complementary tech-savvy startups.

This latter horizontal consolidation can travel up the corporate value chain for better vertical integration in terms of both productivity and efficiency gains.

One of Apple's upstream suppliers, Taiwan's Foxconn Technology Group, may establish one or more new plants in America in response to President Trump's macroeconomic expansion.
