20 Best Yielding Profitable Growing Buyback Kings And My 8 Favorite Stocks

Today's screen discovers stocks with recent buyback announcements. I've compiled those stocks with a recent buyback program announcement.

Those buybacks are paid from a profitable operating business that is growing, not only in the past but should also go forward in the near future.

A consequence is that each of the attached stocks has a positive 5 years past sales performance, positive return on assets and positive expected 5 year EPS growth predictions as well.

Attached you will find the 20 best yielding results.

These are my personal favorites...
