As the name implies, stock buybacks (also known as share repurchase programs) happen when companies buy back their own shares. A firm uses its cash position to repurchase company stock either in the open market or directly from select shareholders. These programs reduce the number of shares outstanding for the company in question and thus increase the ownership stakes of its remaining shareholders. The end result is more profits or earnings per share (EPS) per shareholder.
In our investment process, we often have to ask ourselves this question: Something bad has happened to a company or market; does the current price reflect the news?
The events of the past two years should serve as a good reminder to all of us that no matter what we do every day, we face risks beyond our control. However small the risk may be, there is no way to ensure that you avoid falling victim to these types of events. Not that we should live our lives in constant fear — we should just prepare for the worst and then feel very fortunate should we end up living long and healthy lives.
