If market cap would have gone down anyway, and it went down less because of the buy back, then the buy back wasn't a coverup it, it was beneficial for shareholders. If market cap goes up after the buyback, but less that it would have anyway, than the buy back was harmful for the shareholders.

Of course its pretty hard to know what it would have done anyway.
