Reliance shares continue to flounder even as the company is buying back shares from the market. When the company had announced the share buyback, investors were hopeful that it would act as a good support at lower levels. However, with uncertainty over gas output persisting, investors appear to be using every rise in stock price to book profits. RIL has so far bought back 3.18 crore shares since 14th February, 2012. It touched a 52-week low of Rs 671 on 8th May.
