In that statement using the word "dumpster" implies, at least on this side of the big water, that the stock would be very very low unless it was propped up.
That is a very large exaggeration, a far cry from what I said as seen below."

CUPERTINO, California—March 19, 2012—Apple® today announced plans to initiate a dividend and share repurchase program commencing later this year.
Additionally, the Company’s Board of Directors has authorized a $10 billion share repurchase program commencing in the Company’s fiscal 2013, which begins on September 30, 2012.
