Am I on the right track??? CFAI glossary states: Repurchase yield The negative of the expected percent change in number of shares outstanding in the Grinold–Kroner model. So if a firm sells shares in a secondary, say an additional 5% of shares outstanding, total shares outsatanding will go up. As this is positive number, the repurchase yield is -1*.05= -.05 Thus with more shares outstanding, my expected return will be lower due to dilution. any thoughts??

Exact… If Delta Shares Outstanding is negative… (Shares Buyback)… The return will be positive…
