    • sometimes buybacks are initially viewed as weakness,becuase it means a company doesnt know what to do with its excess cash.The key here is to wait untill earnings release, if they earn the same amount,the P.E. goes down cause of fewer shares out standing,6 mos out they earn more,then everything levers up faster, so it all depends on how you feel about their capacity to maintain earnings growth.
