Oh they care about the products, in the sense they're good enough to generate a lot of profit. But maybe a lot of Magic: The Gathering players have stocks in Hasbro, just to support their favorite card game. I don't know, but I don't think so.
well, whether they care about any individual products is unlikely, but you're assigning a massive generalization of motives to millions of people that just doesn't reflect the reality of modern businesses - stockholders aren't automatons, and corporate mission statements and objectives that are drafted for and approved by majority shareholders include a LOT more than just a cartoon-character stereotype of Mr Burns from the Simpsons. Like everyone else, environmental concerns, social responsibility, public image, etc. all play a role beyond simply "profits!". Not every company is Monsanto.
