Emiliano Assignment 3
Critical Analysis Face Facts: theres money in sin
Tom Stevenson writes about a serious matter in Face Facts: theres money in sin Can a
person make better money in the stock market by investing in ethical companies or by investing
in less ethical companies? Stevenson writes that it appears that sinful companies, like those
associated with the tobacco industry, pay the best and that being a saint in this world, by
investing in ethical companies, does not pay. He then goes on to explain how, in reality, the truth
lies somewhere in between.
Money is the root of every sin. Every business thinks of getting higher profits, and
companies that supply alcohol, guns, tobacco, etc. have steady profits because there is always a
demand for these sinful products regardless of economic conditions. There are some investors
who value their ethics more than money, and they will not invest in sinful companies. So, those
investing in such companies get a higher yield.
Since the introduction of the Corporate Governance approach in 1990, companies tend to
manage in better ways. Sins are enough to break down an economy, as the tobacco industry did.
People enjoy smoking, and companies enjoy money. But the effects of smoking hurt society.
Probably Stevenson is referring to tax issues in this blog, but he is ultimately pointing out many
other relative issues, like health issues caused by tobacco. He concludes that the best approach is
to buy into sinful companies and then get involved in improving them on social, ethical,
environmental issues because in this way investors stand to benefit from a double whammy:
they lock in the high yields of out of favour shares and gain from a re-rating as other investors
recognise the companies improving behavior.

the tobacco industry.” www.telegraph.co.uk. Web. Telegraph.co.uk. 14 Feb, 2015.
