The TSX-listed Canadian dividend growth stocks on our list are buying back significant amounts of their own stock
SmallCapPower | June 6, 2022: Stock buybacks occur when corporations purchase their own shares on the stock market. In repurchasing shares, fewer shares are outstanding, which increases earnings per share (positively) and, often, the value of the stock. In repurchasing shares, an organization can demonstrate to investors that it has a high probability of economic stability and enough cash on hand to deal with emergencies. Today we have identified three Canadian dividend growth stocks that are in the process of, or have completed, big stock buybacks.
