Examples of stock buyback in a Sentence

  1. Tobias Levkovich:

    It's a little bit optimistic to believe that you can define the moves in stocks purely on the basis on stock buyback activity, it's too neat a package to tie up and tie a little bow around of and say 'perfect.' I wish it were that easy.
