What is a buyback?
A buyback, also known as a repurchase, is the purchase by a company of a portion of its outstanding shares that reduces the number of its shares on the open market. This increases the EPS (earnings per share), all else being equal. It is usually looked upon favorably, as management usually look to repurchase shares when they think they are undervalued.
