on the contrary. mgmt knows exactly what it's doing. why? because they're feeding the market this news on the hopes it will temporarily drive prices lower for them to buy back share back. they know everything is fine. very slick if you asked me..
If they'really buying back shares, wouldn't make sense or in their interest to acquire them at a lower costs? If yes, I see them doing or saying things that would give the market the appearance that there is potential risks ahead, perceived or otherwise. No?
