20 Stocks With At Least One Billion Share Buyback Plan In 2016

When corporations are profitable and established, they tend to return capital to shareholders. 

This can be achieved via stock buybacks to shrink the float and to support the stock, or it can be done via one-time dividends or by raising their annualized quarterly dividends.

In my blog, I often cover successful long-term dividend growth stocks. Those companies managed to raise dividends over a decade or half century.


I also talk a little about buyback stocks. Those gave more money back vie share repurchases which is in the end the same.


Today I would give you a short introduction into the biggest share buyback announced from the current fiscal year 2016.


As of now, we've noticed 94 companies with fresh, new, or increased buyback plans.


Here are the biggest announcements from fiscal 2016 to date...
