Yes, on yahoo the adjusted price will take care of splits and dividends. You can see the dividends also listed with the prices. The chart will show the adjusted price and there are little marks for splits.

The buy back does not "change" the price of the stock. IT does affect the number of shares outstanding and we hope that increases the price, but there is no way to tie the number of shares bought back to the adjusted close other than just allowing the free market dictating the price.

So, yes that is correct.
