There is a new mandatory quarterly filing requirement that companies report how much stock they bought and the price paid after they annouce a stock repurchase program. This must be done each quarter until the company announces the end of the stock buyback program.
this rule was put in place to protect investors from companies that announced stock buybacks just to boost their stock price.
now companies have to report and answer on the conference calls what was done or not done and why.
Today also looks like a good day to buy. There is little volume and the stock is stuck in the mud. Won't see earnings for another 2 months, the Company should do what they annouced and buy some stock. ASFI shareholders deserve alot more than they are getting.
