Were these buybacks the right move for Monster Beverage?

Monster Beverage (MNST 1.06%) has announced that it is instituting a $200 million share-buyback program.

Why aren't we seeing buybacks at the same level as the ones we saw last year? In this video, Motley Fool consumer-goods analyst Blake Bos tells us whether this move is good news for investors.
