Will Corporate Buybacks Keep Stock Markets Bubbly?

With the newly found money created by the tax law changes and repatriation, can the corporate buying keep the stock bubble floating?

One of the most asked question is if GLD is the same as owning gold. Like all Wall Street fiat money products, ETFs are actually a contract where the individual investor agrees to pay all the costs, run most of the risks and diminishes daily.
