Lord Jesus Christ Says...

“If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.” Jesus Christ, Mark 8:34-35

stock market--When a company "buys back" their own stock, is this a good or bad thing for the shareholders?

Because share buybacks reduce the supply of available shares, they tend to increase the stock price. (ie Supply and Demand)

Essentially, the company’s executives are using company profits to drive up the value of their own shares/options. So some critics say it’s a legal way of diverting profits to the execs, though all shareholders benefit if the stock price rises.
