    Should have done it when the price was about 50% lower. But of course, do it after shares have had a big run.

    They have actually been buying back shares substantially the whole time since MM took the job. Shares outstanding was reduced by about 15% from 9/30/12 to 9/30/13.

    Oh word? Hmm...


    That also begs the question though, how much of that buyback is for offsetting future dilution via executive compensation with stock/option awards?
