In the following video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner tells investors that today marks one year that Apple has been paying a dividend. He also looks at several analyst expectations coming out of Bloomberg recently, saying the dividend could increase this year by as much as 56%, giving the company an effective 3.7% yield. Andrew tells investors how likely he thinks that could be this year and why Apple is such a great buy right now.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains. However, after the company's major pullback recently, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
