“Apple is hosting its annual shareholder meeting today in Cupertino, Ca. and the big question looming over the event is if CEO Tim Cook will discuss what the company’s plans are for it’s nearly $140 billion cash pile,” Cadie Thompson and Jon Fortt report for CNBC. “Historically, the two-hour meeting is pretty straightforward, but this year Apple may feel pressure to shed more light on its cash strategy because of activist shareholder David Einhorn’s public shaming of Apple for not distributing more cash to shareholders.”
