Share Buybacks Data
Share buybacks or share repurchase, is a valuable financial tool used by publicly traded companies to manage the availability of issued stock capital in the market. Stock buybacks are a means of supporting the share price as an alternative to paying dividends by reducing the number of shares available to investors. Assuming demand remains constant, reducing the number of shares outstanding (supply), the market price of the remaining shares increase.
Following a share repurchase, the company may cancel these shares or hold them in treasury for reissuing in the future. Spending available cash in this way is an indirect means of returning cash to shareholders; by supporting the share price, the value of existing shares is increased.
