The clarification from Georg seems not to be explicit enough for some shareholders, they appear to have their fixed attitude: the company shall be buying their stocks " from the right side" meaning increasing its price, not " on the left side" waiting for other to get rid of stocks. Furthermore, shareholders fail to remember that there are strict rules company needs to follow while buy back, the same goes for the entity responsible for buy back...
Do we really tend to believe that for people who have created and owned the company the goal is to decrease the value of company and its stocks?
Btw, Lerta and Romanian financing is not viewed as a significant turning point in here as well
Last but not least:
Technically: each week company reports the change in numbers of shares held by the company and main shareholders= so if they were to influence the price it would be easily visible in their reports, so how rhe heck it is possible that you believe in this crazy theory?!
