There’s been an endless debate for the past few months over whether or not Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) is cheap. The company’s traditional valuation metrics are among the lowest in the entire stock market, but bears point to growth deceleration and margin contraction as justifications for declining trading multiples.

That’s how much Apple is boosting its current share repurchase program by, and represents the vast majority of the total increase in planned capital returns through 2015. Apple’s initial plan unveiled last year included $10 billion in repurchase authorization, and the new total is $60 billion. To date, Apple has only repurchased $2 billion of stock (4 million shares), which still leaves a massive $58 billion budget for Apple to buy back shares.
