Stock buybacks, whether you like them or loathe them, are a reality and when companies are sitting on so much cash (like they are now – almost $1 trillion!), buybacks are certainly one option for companies looking to deploy their cash hordes.

Barron’s recently reviewed a few online resources to help investors stay on top of macro and company-specific trends.  You should read the whole article (sub. required).

Here are a couple of their ideas and some of my own thrown in to boot…

Stock buyback resources

  • S&P Indices Market Attributes Series — I’m not exactly sure of what that means but this page posts proprietary S&P reports into buybacks.  Good overview on their reports (like this one (.pdf))
  • The Online Investor: OLI does a good job of reporting all the buybacks in the market on a per-company basis.
  • StreetInsider: Ongoing free feed of stock repurchases at numerous U.S. traded companies.
  • Seeking Alpha transcript search: Seeking Alpha publishes thousands of free conference call transcripts.  Search for terms like “stock buybacks” or “share repurchases” and get a list of which companies are talking about them and what they’re saying.
