Do you ever favour products from companies that you own shares in? eg. Do you get a warm fuzzy feeling buying from Mr Price knowing you own part of the company, or do you buy shares in Mr Price so that you don't HAVE to shop there! I know I get all warm and fuzzy supporting my own!

I was wondering why my portfolio consists solely of BAT, SAB and DST. Thanks for the answer & could you suggest any others that would compliment my lifestyle.

my shareholding and my purchases are not related in any way. If I owned MrP, all that would matter to me is that other people are buying from them and that they run a solid outfit. I own Shoprite, but i shop at PnP :/

I certainly get a warm and fuzzy feeling after a bottle or two of fine wine, finished off with a few glasses of Amarula over ice. Then again that may not be the result of holding a little Distell...ag the warm fuzzy feeling is still lekka though.

I do think that one will buy a share a little easier based on pure emotion because you recognise a certein brand (whether you use it or not) and not only on pure fundamentals (which you should be doing). Emotions are very strong and can also be very dangerous. I am off to go and support Famous Brands for lunch, it is Whacky Wednesday at Steers after all!

Make sure they are BAT brands though, we don't want the illegal cigs sold that lead to some oke buying guns to hi-jack a speechless person somewhere ;-)
