Investors are watching the stock market close after the yield curve inversion.  Stock buybacks are slowing awaiting first quarter earning results — more than half of the companies in the S&P 500 have halted share repurchases, next week that will reach 76%, and 86% the following week.  Stock buybacks have been the main driver of this bull market.  The S&P 500 will decline after the halt on buybacks and the energy lost in the bear market rally the next step in straight down.

The S&P 500, or S&P, is an American stock market index based on the market capitalizations of 500 large companies having common stock listed on public equity exchanges like the NYSE and the NASDAQ.

Stock buybacks are an alternative to dividends. When a company repurchases its own shares, it reduces the number of shares held by the public. The reduction of traded shares increases earnings per share (EPS) even if profits remain flat.
