From S&P, the actual data in regards to share count:

Q4 2015
Issues with diluted share counts for Q4 2015 and Q4 2014 EPS (full reporting lags the releases) -> Therefore adding at least a 4% tailwind to their current EPS

Companies 480 out of S&P 500

Q4,'15 lower shares than Q3,'14: 330 companies or 68.75%

"on our way to an 8th quarter of at least 20% doing share count reduction"

well ok but I was questioning M's claim that buybacks were 'accelerating'

I believe, with low confidence, that they are not.
