    Rio Tinto announces new $3.2 billion share buyback, stock rises

    The news helped to drive Rio Tinto's London share price nearly 2 percent higher by 0927 GMT and pushed up the Australian listing by 3.5 percent. Across the mining sector, a trend to hand money back to shareholders has gathered steam following a recovery from the mining and commodity crash of 2015-16 and pressure from investors not to waste growing piles of cash on buying up assets that may never deliver returns. In its latest move, Rio Tinto, which has already returned more money to shareholders than its peers, said it will conduct an off-market share buyback for up to 41.2 million shares in its Australian entity Rio Tinto Ltd, worth about $1.9 billion, and further on-market purchases of London's Rio Tinto plc shares, bringing the total to $3.2 billion.
