So just wondering and recognize I dont follow the trading like some do on here. Just not my gig.
1b shares were bought back but not retired? Correct? If i am wrong please say so.
With the news of the aquisition isnt it possible that
the aquisition may have involved a stock (or some stock) deal to the aquired? That would mean that
they werent bought back or expected retired for that matter.
Just speculating here and more or less throwing a dart!
