I wonder what great service/products they'll suddenly eliminate this time.

I was getting lunch just now and the TV was on some business channel blathering about Amazon and Apple's numbers aren't great either, even though they made massive profits.

Where is it written that a company has to make more each year?

They're now in the  squeezing phase.

I got an email that my domain prices were doing up by almost double. Then, a few days later youtube premium is going up by over 50%.

Google's real customers, the advertisers, must be really getting squeezed now. Everything will be going up in the core google product prices now.

Remember. The stock price must go up forever. If that means you must lose your job, become homeless and digging through dumpsters for supper so the quarterly results meet analysts projections, so be it peasant.

Except for retirees.

Wife's mother worked for 45 years as a school-teacher, half of that in a school district that turned to working class to bad.

She relies on pension and stock earnings.

People need to be able to put away something for later when they aren't in their prime health and age, they can still live independently.

Please don't equate not having a job as becoming homeless and eating dumpster dinners.

Its only the cruel societies where that is true.

A lot of countries have safety net that housing, health and food needs are met no matter what.

You can pursue what is meaningful and important, and a job provides purpose and achievement; rather than a chains to your balls to your employer as you said.

i never took you as one who likes Socialism.  yes, you need others (labor) to live off of.  to pay the bills.

and Lincoln would say: there's meat in that.

but still, this nation spends way too much effort licking stock owner ass and shiatting on the labor that puts value into the stocks in the first place.

Labor built this nation.  lazy stock owners.

Labor creates Wealth.  Labor came before wealth and deserves the higher regard.

Active investing and keeping tabs on how companies are doing, and that is also labor.

I've seen private companies do some really shady stuff and nobody can call out for it. When its a public company, there is a huge level of scrutiny. I'd shudder to see what Google would be run like if it was run like a private company.

There are large number of people who work everyday to analyze earnings reports, markets etc and provide some counterbalance.

I think there is only a small sliver of people who have too much influence as a stock owner that are themselves not founders. Most are passive earners like retirees or active traders that bust their ass understanding the larger picture of what is going on.
