Last week, I made the decision to directly buy stock in a company for the first time in nearly four years. The stock I purchased was Sanofi, S.A. listed as an ADR on the NASDAQ under the symbol SNY. This decision was based on my personal interest in their pharmaceutical pipeline and desire to act as an ethical investor. One of the common phrases cited on Wall Street is the “need to create shareholder value.” This phrase often acts as the alleged motivation for every decision corporations make such as employee cutbacks. My renewed interest in investing brings with it a desire to enforce my own values as a shareholder. The value I demand from my stock is human progress, not profit.
You can expect that I will speak out aggressively against actions take by management at companies I own a stake in.
