With the U.S. stock market dipping into correction territory, Corporate America could step in and buy back their own shares on the cheap, potentially bolstering ETFs that focus on the share buyback strategy. According to Goldman Sachs, the market sell-off is "overdone" and will be partially offset in part by companies returning to share repurchases as fundamentals still underpin values, CNBC reports.

Corporate America's cash infusion is being used to fuel a surge in share repurchases, bolstering ETFs that cover the buyback theme. Goldman Sachs analysts revealed that for the first time in a decade, buybacks accounted for the largest share of cash spending among S&P 500 companies, reports William Watts for MarketWatch. As more companies look to add value through share repurchases, ETF investors can also capitalize on the potential opportunity through buyback-themed ETF strategies.
The S&P 500 companies repurchased a record $178 billion worth of their own stocks during the first quarter of 2018, per the S&P Dow Jones Indices data. The number accounted for about 94% of companies’ share buyback plan and easily outpaced the previous peak of $172 billion set more than a decade ago, in the third quarter of 2007. The technology sector, accounting for 32.4% of buybacks in the first quarter, is leading the pack with more-than-doubled share repurchases.
