Can NWSA Stock Continue To Rise?

NWSA: News logo

News Corp’s stock (NASDAQ: NWSA), increased by 8% in the last twenty-one trading days (one month). In comparison, the broader S&P500 index fell marginally over the same period. News Corp, a global, diversified media and information services company, saw most of that gain in the last five days after it announced a new $1 billion stock repurchase program. This latest authorization allows the company to repurchase a combination of class A and class B common stock in the open market or otherwise from time to time with no time limit and may be modified, suspended, or discontinued at any time. This stock repurchase program followed the termination of a stockholder rights agreement which was approved by the board in May 2013. It should be noted that the company will only begin to execute the repurchase program after its FY22 Q1 earnings release in early November.
