I'm interested in hearing about the ones you own for not-just-financial reasons: your beliefs, your interests, sentimentality (!) or the freebies, such as:
- I'm a fan of Warren Buffett's wisdom, so bought a single share of BRK-B in order to have some skin in the game. (Just like betting to make a basketball game more "interesting"!) Also, so I could get a ticket to the shareholder's meeting.
- A friend brought a single share of Tesla stock in symbolic and philosophical support of clean energy (almost "putting his money where his mouth is").
- I think I recall a Buffett interview once where he described buying 100 shares of a friend's company just to keep tabs on them.
- I know a number of companies offer discounts on their products to shareholders.
