These Companies are Spending BILLIONS to Buy Back Their Own Stock
It's been one of the most overlooked aspects of earnings season… I'm not talking about the market's strong gains or the recent robust employment growth. I'm talking about stock buyback announcements. I've counted more than 30 companies that have announced plans to buy back at least $1 billion in stock since late October. And such big buybacks are often a harbinger of stock price gains, as analysts look to boost their EPS (earnings per share) forecasts that result from smaller share counts.
I decided to take a final look at the companies buying back big chunks of stock, specifically, the biggest stock buybacks in February. I narrowed my focus to companies with plans to buy at least $900 million in stock, and in each case, the buyback must represent at least 10% of shares outstanding. That percentage tells you precisely how much EPS can be boosted — all other things being equal.
