A stock buybacks occurs when a company decides to repurchase its own shares. Before any buyback, the company must comply with the strict rules for stock repurchase plans under the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Companies may decide to repurchase their stock for several reasons:
1 - This buybacks will boost the company's earnings per share because less outstanding shares will be available in the market.
2 - Availability of excess cash. The company chooses to use this cash in a repurchase plan; the company may think that its shares are selling at a discount price. (The stock price is less than what it actually worth).
3 - Acquire shares for management and employee incentive plans.
4 - Increase its amount of treasury stock so that it could be used to buy another company or for a merger. (The purchased shares are held as what is known as treasury stock).

A company repurchase plan is generally considered as a positive sign and may indicate that a company is financially healthy.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
