    Being a "most admired" company doesn't help shareholders - Blogging Stocks

    Companies must throw little parties and hand out bonuses when they get on one of the "most admired" lists that several magazines put out. The way that firms get on these lists is often vague and sometimes based on surveys of people who may admire companies for things that having nothing to do with making money, which should help move stock prices up.

    It depends on what is more admirable: creating wealth for people who do nothing more than invest money to get rich, or treating those of us who work our butts off creating that profit, well.
