The stock market has been a bit volatile in 2018, to say the least. However, in times of turmoil, there is typically a reason behind it…The main area of discussion that has not been a major talking point is a term called “Stock Buybacks.”

This past year alone about 1 Trillion Dollars worth of stock has been purchased back by various companies. Why would they want to do this?

It’s like when you borrow money from your parents and have no intention of paying them back.
