Think about the word "investment" for a minute. When you buy stock, it is from a person who already owns it. You don't buy the stock from the company. Nothing goes to the company and 100% goes to the former owner of the stock. (Minus the market skim.) The company has the responsibility to give the new stock owner dividends but the new stock owner has contributed nothing to the company and a part of the productivity of the company's workers will be diverted to the stock owner. The stock market should be termed "vampire capitalism!" It bleeds resources from the company to someone who had nothing to do with any benefit to the company whatsoever.

Think twice when you use the word "investment." It doesn't mean what you think it does.
