Stock buybacks refer to the repurchasing of shares of stock by the company that issued them.

Looks like they're the same thing. Should these tags be merged?

  • I'd suggest posting an answer saying they should be merged and identifying which one should "win". Then people can post an alternative if they disagree. Jun 19, 2020 at 18:16

I agree they are the same and should be merged. For what it's worth, I'd vote for "share-repurchase" since "buyback" is more colloquial (e.g. "buyback" in wikipedia links to "share repurchase").

  • I will implement this soon if there are no other views. Please ping me if I haven't done it by say the weekend (27th June) :-) Jun 22, 2020 at 22:21
