Shares are just as intangiable as bitcoins. Just because you own a share, doesn't mean you get to walk into one of their labs and walk off with a beaker or volumetric flask. The only thing you can do with a share certificate from Glaxo is sell it again for whatever someone else is prepared to offer you for it, which is pretty much the only thing you can do with a bitcoin.
