Musk Feuds With Coal Company Exec

So before we talk about Musk lets look at an interesting article:

Share repurchase programs are nothing new; they have been around for decades, and in most cases, one would view this type of action under a favourable light. However, for the past few years, companies have used this technique as a ploy to hide stagnating earnings or even falling profits.  The idea is very simple, and the rewards are lucrative as most corporate officers have incentive-based rewards.

Corporations borrow money for next to nothing and then use this to purchase huge blocks of shares; the number of outstanding shares drops and the EPS magically rises. Each year for the past six years the amount of money allocated towards share buybacks has soared because as we stated, this is the fastest way to increase EPS without doing a single thing magically.

In the good old days, companies would invest the cash they accumulated or the money they borrowed into activities that would improve the bottom line and not resort to financial gimmickry to create the illusion that all is well.  Instead of investing in their own business, corporations have been funnelling huge amounts of cash towards share buyback programs. Share Repurchase Binge Keeping Stock Market Bull Alive
