Buybacks

Buybacks occur when a company purchases shares of its own publicly traded stock in the open market. We have an ongoing authorization, originally approved by our Board of Directors in 2005, and subsequently amended, to repurchase up to $65 billion in shares of our common stock in open market or negotiated transactions. As of April 1, 2017 $5.5 billion remained available for repurchase under the existing repurchase authorization limit and we have repurchased 4.9 billion shares at a cost of $108.8 billion since the program began in 1990.
