Rationalwalk, funny thing, I turned your chart upside down and it looked the same. Just kidding. In reality, It looks good on paper but there are a myriad of reasons I wouldn't bet on the same result although it may very well happen and I know you would never "bet" on such a thing.

As I said, I could list several reasons why it might not do the same thing but the first thing that comes to mind is that market conditions then (sept. oct. 2011) when the first buy back was initiated were far far different than they are now. Market conditions then arguably played a vital role not only in the buy back itself but the results thereafter.
