At what point does a company decide to purchase its shares. Market price is slightly above book value $360 MP versus $353 price. Elizabeth Caspers Peters seems to be consitantly selling 500 shares every 6 months or so. Wouldn't it make sense to offer to buy shares and take the company private and eliminate Wesco's cost to be a public company? Also, even if not taken private couldn't Wesco arrange to buy Elizabeth Caspers Peters shares when she decides to sell, thereby decreasing outstanding share count.
