SCREW the shareholders. Let's jack up our salaries and bonuses. Lets extend our contracts and stock options. Lets dilute the shares. So what if the price go down. We still get paid big. Oh yah did I mention we don't need to pay those bastard shareholders dividends. Why should we make Larry Ellison give some of our profits to the shareholders?
Since when does the world owe you anything? Did you build up the company, devote your every waking moment to it. Forgo everything else in life to make it successful. Everyone gets out of life what they make of their life.
