Buybacks Work Until They Don't
GE Market Cap
Since 2008, GE has spent $53 billion on share buybacks for a market cap of $75 billion.

Recall that Angelo Mozilo, former Countrywide Financial CEO cashed out over a billion in stock options while running the company into the ground.
Share buybacks provide a strong bid for insider selling at exorbitant prices.
