That said, companies like CF Holdings, Dollar Tree, and Edwards Lifesciences are among the best at getting buybacks right. In this segment, the guys analyze Gentex and Logitech International and how their respective managements perform when it comes to share buybacks.

    i am not sure the Logitech numbers mentioned are accurate?, check official numbers from link

    acquired 26,109,412 since August 2011 Avg ~$9.4 so where is the problem

    http://ir.logitech.com/buyback.cfm?cl=us,en

    you have to see the Logitech business fundamentals & potentials like Windows 8, Emerging Markets, Logitech for Business, to Mac, Tablets, refreshing mid/high products

    Also Logitech down due to mistakes in 2009-2010 of previous management, it is history as current management said fixed. (Google TV box & Europe retail Channel)

    i believe evaluating buyback based on long time span VS stock price at certain date is irrelevant

    for ex: Apple & IBM were in bad shape in the 90s, if you did a comparison then it will look bad.
