I am not being a smart ***** in asking this question, but I truly would like to know the answer. I hear mgt. moaning about our stock price from time to time. They talk as if stock was our main product. Last time I checked we were a pkg. del. co. Is their motive a selfish one(after all the mgt.holds most of the stock) or does it really matter to the companies bottom line? I have been here for over 30 years and most of my time UPS was a private company and they seemed to do just fine. So I ask again "Why should I care what the stock price is unless I own some"?
