hmm....well...i'm of the school of thought that always takes a scunner to share buy backs.There are too many plc's buying back their own shares currently.Why is this do you think?.Look up what Warren Buffet thinks about this particular subject.

Increase share stats or they may just be confident in the company. Surely a good thing. I'm sure increased divi will come too.

Interesting update from the AGM today, the company has the ability to repurchase shares using capital. Since their cash reserves are increasing per year, minus new office costs mentioned below, this could increase the value of shares. Also noted the "over 1,300 employees" in today's update which is over 140 person increase from the July update. Great!

I’m very bullish about Kainos as a IT stock to hold. They are looking for new HQ offices to expand, so it’s all positive. Another stock I’m investing in is Dalata Hotel Group....I’m close to their activities and they are the rising star of the Institutional Funds. Standard Life, Decca and M&G have all invested in their conevant strength recently.
