Day 760: Stock Buyback

Yesterday I was explaining how professional football teams recruit coaches… they don’t hire them as well as how my daughter got extremely disappointed when she hit the popcorn button but the potato remained a potato.

Speaking of questions we ask ourselves…

What do you call a French guy wearing sandals?

Phillippe Philoppe.

In other news…

Reading is breathing in… writing is breathing out.

*Do both*



‘Stock Buyback’

I talked about this on one of my recent podcasts…

Here’s part of my answer:

“Basically, it’s a company saying we’re profitable, we have positive cashflow and we ended up with a hundred million dollars in cash.

We don’t have a short-term game plan to spend that cash that’ll realize a decent ROI.

We’ve therefore decided to return that capital to our shareholders in a tax efficient way (the earning per share will slightly increase and assuming they don’t sell them, the value of their shares SHOULD go up and there’s no tax for the shareholder to pay) and buy back stock which reduces the number of outstanding shares.

*If they decided to pay a dividend with the cash, the shareholders would be taxed*

If this sounds amazing for the shareholders…

Here’s the other side of the argument.

Share buybacks, often called financial engineering…

Could lead shareholders to accuse management of lacking vision and or acting in a self-interested way.

CEO’s and high-level management are often compensated through options tied to the company share price.


Creativity of management could be compromised when they’re incentivized too heavily on stock price and not on long term thinking / innovation…

*A small number of people tend to own a large percentage of stock, as in management, cough cough*

… subsequently leaving them to reduce creativity and not reinvest in the company in areas like expansion, innovation, R and D, new factories, hire more people, new machinery etc…

All of which are paramount to success and long-term shareholder value.”

You heard it here first.


Now, pick up the phone and go help someone.

PS. People want to take your spot until they experience what it takes to play your position.

PPS. If this helps and you want it to really sink in… GO TEACH IT to someone cause that’s the best way for you to learn it. A friend, your spouse, a prospect, a client etc…

*Don’t plagiarize my work like a lame arse.

PPPS. Marriages break up from lack of money… over lack of love X 100.
