Now Omar and the board approve a $5 billion buyback. Anyone with half a brain knows that when a company buys back stock it is to lower the amount of outstanding shares as a way to increase (and inflate) the stock price.

On the contrary, couldn't some of this money be used to give back and invest into Medtronic employees?

It's actually a $6 billion buyback which is in addition to the $5 billion plan that was authorized in 2017. As the purchases do not happen all at the same time, there is still $1.3 billion left on the $5 billion plan from 2017. This would help explain some of the 28% increase MDT has seen over the last 2 years.

Omar must have taken the poster and analyst advice two years ago because he has mostly focused on the stock in the last two years. Up 28% since that image was posted.

Fact: Medtronic and the CEO only care about the stock price and invesotors.
