Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the long-term share price effects for Swedish companies that employed repurchases programs during 2000 - 2012.

This paper applies a trading strategy where the investor invests in stocks of compa-nies that engage in repurchase of their own equity. We test buy-and-hold abnormal returns versus two different proxies for the control firm, using small sample t-statistics.

Abnormal returns for one to five years are insignificant under sta-tistic tests, using the supersector indices. In contrast, they are significant using a proxy for the market index as control firm. Factors hypothesized to contribute to this result are incon-clusive using our method of comparison. As a whole, we suggest that investing in companies that repurchase stock is a solid strategy: It is on par or better than index.
