ABSTRACT
The article examines why insiders and savvy investors engaged in stock repurchases and buyout deals. It infers that the strong conviction on stock values lures buyers to leverage themselves to make purchases. The author states that such behavior is less due to a rejection of dividends than a recognition that directs purchases of stocks while they are cheap.
