    Taking Stock: Share Buybacks and Shareholder Value (MSCI)

    Contrary to concerns expressed by many observers, we found no compelling evidence of a negative impact from share buybacks on long-term value creation for investors overall. We did find, however, that buybacks can impact long-term investment returns differently for active and index investors. Over the periods we observed, Companies where index investors were the largest shareholders included a much wider range of buyback impacts, good and bad, than companies where the largest shareholders were buy-and-hold investors; on average, total returns for companies where buy-and-hold investor were the largest shareholders were 18% higher than for index investor companies from 2007 to 2016.
