The basic answer is that share repurchases are great when the share price is undervalued, and not-so-great when the share price is overvalued. To put it into a more useful context, if you would otherwise reinvest your dividends or invest new capital into the company at current stock prices, then share repurchases are useful to you because the company basically does it for you. The alternative is that the company could pay you a higher dividend, but you’d be taxed on that dividend and reinvest it into the company anyway. On the other hand, if you would not reinvest dividends or invest new capital into the company at current prices, then share repurchases are not in alignment with your current outlook, and it would be better for you to receive a higher dividend. Something else to be considered is that when a company uses money for share repurchases when it could be paying a higher dividend instead, the company’s management is limiting your control and increasing theirs.

Privatisation is the selling of public sector assets to the private sector in order to introduce competition and improve market efficiency. One argument for privatisation is that private companies are incentivised by profit by cutting costs and producing more efficiently. If you work for a government run industry, managers do not usually share in any profits. However, in private firms managers will usually receive a share of the profits motivating them to work harder, and as they are interested in making profit they are more likely to cut business costs and aim to be more efficient. Since privatisation, companies such as BT, and British Airways have shown degrees of improved efficiency and higher profitability due to the competitiveness within their respective industries.

Lower operating costs means they have more money to invest in innovation, resulting in a stabilized domestic workforce. In the service sectors, the cost saving from offshoring enables companies to create new service lines, many of which had been deferred for want of investment.
