Huh? If a company you own wants to buy back shares (which if you own shares you are yourself, an OWNER) do you want to pay more or less for those shares? I know I want to pay less. As little as possible actually.
To better understand this imagine you own half a pizzaria. The business is worth 1 million dollars. Each day he offers you to buy an extra 5% of his share. Some days that 5% he wants 100k for. Other days 50k (exactly 5%) and other days he wants 25k for it. Which offer are you hoping he gives you since you have extra cash and you DO want to buy back some of his share in the business you both own?
