Apple is buying back a lot of its stock. 

The tech giant said Thursday that it's repurchased $14 billion in shares since releasing disappointing first-quarter results two weeks ago. 

Apple CEO Tim Cook told the "Wall Street Journal" that the company has bought back more than $40 billion dollars of its stock over the past 12 months. 

Cook says that's a record for any company over a similar period of time and that it means Apple is confident about what it's doing now and what it plans to do in the future.
