Companies we’ll never buy

 Pfizer and Johnson&Johnson (NYSE: PFE & JNJ). These companies either foster, or look the other way, when their sales reps and agents promote off-label psychoactive drugs for children, especially the most vulnerable – children in foster care, wards of the uncaring State, using highly-questionable sales techniques, but leading to billions of dollars of profits.

When IFO finds any others, she will post her opinions about them. These are not financial analysis opinions, obviously, but personal opinions about appalling behavior on the part of the sales teams.

Another company she won’t buy is:

INTL Fcstone Inc (NASDAQ:INTL), otherwise known as International Assets Holding Corporation, is a financial services holding company. The Company and its subsidiaries offer a broad spectrum of financial services to its customers throughout the world, including execution and advisory services in commodities, currencies, and international securities.

Why? Aside from their business model, which contains everything IFO stays away from, you can’t say their name in polite company, for cryin’ out loud!

    Apparently you’re not the only ones not buying that INTL stock. It only averages a 50,000 shares a day!
