The benefit to the shareholder is in the increased price of the stock and the dividends paid out.

Hi again,

Sorry about the analogy, guess I went a lil too far. I agree with that if the shares go up, but what should be more important are dividends, which are paid out reguarly, and not so much stock price appreciation, which is riskier. I think that owning stock should always be about makimg money, not worryimg about whether you philosophically agree with the products the company pushes. I am not a friend to stocks, nor should I be, I should put on the hat of a landlord, and tell that stock to show me the money!
