Re: S&W report responds to activist investors

These “investors” should follow liberal presidential candidate Howard Schultz’s advice from 6 years ago:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/fredericka ... fea43443fa
At Starbucks’ annual meeting in Seattle on Wednesday a shareholder complained to the chief executive, Howard Schultz, that the company had lost customers because of its support for gay marriage. Last year Starbucks announced its support for Washington's state's referendum backing gay marriage, and in response the National Organization for Marriage launched a boycott of the coffee chain.

“We employ over 200,000 people in this company, and we want to embrace diversity. Of all kinds."

At that point the audience interrupted in cheers and applause. Then Schultz concluded, "If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38% you got last year, it's a free country. You can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much." More cheers.
