    BUY BACK--JUST ANOTHER DESPERATE GIMIC

    Short of offering a dividend, the most significant method a successful company can employ to return value to its investors is to use profits not earmarked for growth to buy back shares. This is a sign of rational management... and a successful enterprise.

    This is straight out of Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett.

      Their share price hasn't performed to badly over the last 30 years.
