Hey, just saw an interesting post on twitter.

How do I screen for stocks that buy back their own stock?

Thank you!!!
Best Regards

Re: Buybacks
Use EqPurchTTM (or EqPurchQ or EqPurchA or EqPurch3YAvg) > 0, depending on how far back you want to look. If you only want companies that have bought back more shares than they've issued in that time period, use EqPurchTTM - EqIssuedTTM > 0.

Re: Buybacks
Seems to work. This is the return of S&P 1500 stocks that pass this screen.

Re: Buybacks
I'm seeing the same thing. A great compliment to a value strategy.
