White Paper: Stock Buybacks

White Paper: Stock Buybacks Updated: 10/22/2014

Over the past five years, the stock market has experienced a strong and consistent recovery. Major indexes are near record levels. After such a long, sustained bull market, one might ask, “Who are the buyers driving this market?” The answer, perhaps surprisingly, is that listed companies themselves are among the biggest buyers of stock.. To be precise, companies are buying back their OWN stock via stock buyback (or share repurchase) programs. This trend has companies buying more of their stock than individuals, hedge funds, and investment institutions.
