reverse split is best. Tax, Tax, Tax is all Democrats understand
Goes against all the precedent? Stock buybacks were illegal until Reagan changed that in 1982.

I have no issues with companies buying back shares with EARNED money -- I do have an issue with companies taking on massive leverage borrowing tons of cheap money with these low interest rates to buy back shares -- this is probably why 220 of the S&P 500 companies now have a BBB rating -- 1 step above junk -- and when they are unable to meet debt obligations or make numbers with earnings the fastest way to solve the problem is to lay off people --

Never mind the practice was ILLEGAL until a few years ago. The mechanism for returning value to shareholders is called a dividend. Buybacks are simply a way of producing artificial demand(aka higher prices) for execs to sell their stocks into, and nothing more.
I love to hear you talk about companies borrow billions of dollars to buy their stocks, CEOs gets big bonuses. CEOs then quite their jobs' then sell the own stocks at the peak. This scheme is only benefit the rich and it is fraudulent.

Buybacks should be stopped. Dividends payment should be encouraged
Workers should buy stock

I don't know about everyone else but I've made a lot more money the past couple years. Got my house paid off a year earlier, but my hopefully future fiance a nicer ring and am now starting invest some of my money. Rich people are more then happy to give their money to other people they just want something in return such as labor or partnership in their companies (buying stocks). Etc Which seems fair to me I don't give my money to anyone without getting something in return, well maybe taxes but that's a different discussion.

Tami Baldwin from WI was the person who was for this. I guess those 2 took it up.
DemocRATS are willing to strangle the economy in order to get closer to a communist state. Why do these people always want to dictate what other people do with their money?!

Stock buy backs are the same as dividends.

Missing in this presentation is perhaps the real motivation for corporate buybacks. Management compensation is often based on earnings per share numbers. Buybacks is a way to boost EPS without real company performance. Profits should go toward R&D, investments, acquisitions, training and increased dividends, *not* buybacks. In the most egregious cases, corporations have borrowed trillions to buyback their stocks, a disservice to long term shareholders.
Get to the point jesus.
If growth raises wages, then why have wages been stagnant for so long? Clearly this thinking is false.
Buyback = Manipulation

Democrats are trying to destroy the American dream we all want for ourselves. You try and stop investors from cashing out their OWN money. You stop investment. Democrats are hellbent on socialism for all but the ruling elite class.
