Re: Einhorn's Ulterior Motif
""When you buy stock in a company, you must agree with the way the company is managed""
When you own stock you own a share of the company. If you have enough stock or supporters then you are fully entitled to change the way the company is managed. That's why shareholders can vote.
Indeed if a company can't see any future in what it does it's the duty of the directors to return as much value to the shareholders as they can. One of the reasons for taking a company private is to avoid shareholder involvement, although like Dell you might end-up in regretting that.
