That probably explains some of the weakness over the past two days. The number of shares is about 1 percent of the float, so the impact will be minimal. When YHOO resumes share buybacks, price will rocket higher. YHOO’s average buyback price of $18.54 is probably the bottom of the trading range till next earnings report.
