Buyback ETF Overview

Buyback ETFs represent companies that are buying back their shares on the investment thesis that companies that do so have a greater chance of share price appreciation. These ETFs usually track a market-cap-weighted index of U.S. firms that repurchased at least 5% of their shares in the previous 12 months.
