Wall Street was washed away by the financial tsunami. Taiwan stock market was also impacted by the crisis. In order to reduce losses that caused by the stock fall and re-establish investor’s confidence, company can stabilize stock prices by using treasury stock to stop stock prices drop.
However, the implementation of treasury stock system has both pros and cons, the biggest abuse is it may be easy to become a major shareholders’ insider trading tool. Moreover, there are serious information asymmetry between the users of financial reports and the managements. Therefore, understanding the motivation for repurchasing stock will help investors to measure firms’ operation performance and investment risk.
