TCS Buyback

Buyback is when a company decides to buy some of its listed shares back from investors. Often, buybacks can offer many short-term investment opportunities. This is because companies usually announce a buyback at a price higher than the existing market price. So, many short-term investors look to buy the shares of the company at the lower market price and submit them in the company’s buyback.
