Re: "not in the best interests of shareholders"

The issue is that the best interest of shareholders seems to be evaluated over a ever shortening future times span, and not over the longer time span that would be the responsible thing to do for both the company and shareholders. It's a simple fact that the two questions "How do we give the shareholders the most money NOW" is very rarely compatible with "How do we give the shareholders the most money over the next ten years"
