Its no secret that investors buy gold as a hedge against falling stocks. However, investors are very reactionary, accumulating gold after stocks have begun their initial decline:

 

This pattern of buying is apparent when looking at the two previous recessions, the first spurred by the dot-com bubble, and second the Worldwide credit crisis.

A buyback is when a company purchases some of their outstanding shares. Its one method a company generates value for shareholders, and also allows them to invest in themselves when they think they are undervalued. For S&P companies, this number is dropping drastically. Obviously, they know something general investors do not.
