Stock Repurchase and Excess Returns: An Empirical Examination

  • Pugh, William
  • Jahera, John S, Jr
Registered author(s):

    The excess returns associated with repurchase announcements are viewed largely as a reaction to management's statement that the firm's shares are underpriced; management's signal provides new information that enhances the firm's market value. Although earlier studies have found the excess return to be closely related to the premium set by management, other factors play a part in determining both the market reaction and the premium level set by management. Among these factors are relative market capitalization, holding by institutions, immediate alternative uses for cash, the level of insider control, recent stock price performance, the relative size of the tender offer, and the resultant change in the firm's capital structure.
