as still stand by the assertion, based on studies, that buybacks -- as a rule -- is a blackhole of no added company value (ie: stock price). especially when you're trying to buyback shares when you're losing money (negative EPS). If anything, it makes the negative EPS even bigger. That'll plummet the stock.
Mgmt seems pretty bright with this turnaround. i trust they wont make that dumb a move. if they do... oooofda.
