When a company annouces job cuts like Microsoft did yesterday, investors are happy and the stock price usually heads north. That’s because the company is basically cutting cost and that will improve its margins. So that’s good news for investors as they get to profit from that.
On the other hand, we are talking of people losing their jobs. In the case of MSFT, we are talking of 18.000 jobs.
So I am wondering how a Catholic investor in such a company should react other than hoping that the affected find new jobs or equally invest in the company. I mean, it’s a public company. So everyone can buy their shares if they want.
