Why People Buy
A man walked into a town near the Eldorado oil
fields the other day and permitted himself to be
cross-examined by one of the eagle-eyed newspaper
i eporters. When the interview was published it
was easy to see w hy people buy shares in oil corpo-
The man interviewed is sole proprietor of three
shares in an oil company. Each share is of the par
value of $100 according to the legend printed on the
This man who owned these shares invested three
hundred dollars in the stock of an oil company. Then
came a speculator who offered a few more dollars
for the three shares, and the owner accepted the of-
fer. He hastened home to get the certificates. Then
he started tor the door, whereupon his wife became
star performer in the little drama, her part of the di-
alogue being as follows: “Now, you put those cer-
g tificates right back in the book case and don,t you
■ dare offer them for sale; they may bring us an in-
S come some of these fine days,”
1 Well, the shares went back into the bookcase-
■ The company struck oil. Oh, yes, the name of the
1 company is the trapshooters company. * Each morn-
Bing the owner of the three shares gets a dividend of
|$500; in other words he gets his investment returned
|| to him each sixteen hours of the day. So we now
| know why people buy shares in oil companies.
|j Oil investments are all right. All that a person
1 needs to make money in that line is to buy a low
1 priced stock in a company which is known to be cer-
tain to bring in production. That’s all there ia to it_
