I can't believe you are recommending to your readers that they should invest in greedy oil stocks or even greedier pharmaceutical stocks.
Readers, do you see the irony in this comment?
If you have a problem with a company, why are you buying their products in the first place? And if you don’t buy the company's products, then you have no costs to self-fund. Which means you have no need to buy the company's stock.
And if for some reason you feel "forced" to buy some product from a company you hate, you should find it uproariously awesome that the company's dividend can pay you to buy their stuff.
Finally, here's a question for readers to ponder: What does this reader gain by shooting down a solution that, clearly, could be helpful to others?
Readers, have you seen examples of "solution-shooting" in your life? How do you handle it?
