Stamps.com to buy its own stock after massive decline

Stamps.com Inc. (NAS:STMP) said Monday afternoon that it planned to repurchase up to $60 million in shares after a massive decline. The company said that the board of directors authorized the company to buy back shares over the next six months, starting March 14. Shares in the online-postage company dove more than 50% after executives announced the end of an exclusive deal with the U.S. Postal Service last month, leading to a dismal forecast for 2019. Shares gained almost 2% in after-hours trading, after closing up 1.4% at $88.31.
