According to the company's intuitive Web site AN is the largest automotive retailer in the U.S. Recently the CEO announced that AN will release its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended Dec. 31 on Thursday, January 31, 2013. With the dramatic correction in the share price of AN from its $48.56 high on Oct. 19 to currently below $40, it wouldn't surprise analysts if CEO Jackson and the board continue the tradition of buying back the company's shares. Other publicly traded standouts of the DJIA like Intel ( INTC) are likely to announce stock buybacks. INTC, which is currently sitting on total cash of $10.5 billion, might be one of them when it releases its earnings report on Jan. 17. This as well as its shift toward mobile devices may boost its share price. Expect to see publicly traded companies buying back their shares directly in the months ahead. If you happen to own shares before the announcements you're likely to receive something akin to a tax-free dividend in the form of a sudden surge in the stock's price. Anticipate thoughtfully, do your due diligence and keep your fingers crossed. At the time of publication the author has positions in INTC and SWHC.
