    Well there are occasional activist groups who try to get enough votes through for other agendas so if you do want to influence a company to change and act altruistically rather than for profit say then you can always buy shares and try to do so. But you'll be going up against a lot of other people who have bought in order to make a profit.

    Yup. Buying a share or two in order to get access to AGMs, etc, is one thing but in order to actually use shareholder influence to affect strategic decisions, well, you're up against institutional invstors, like pension funds, unti trusts etc, with million invested. I would suggest that actually getting that level of shareholder influence is a non-starter, unless conceivably there are a very large number of 'protest' shareholders indeed, acting in a coordinated way. Personally, I don't see it working.

    Re: Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards may be pricier than expected

    Once I heard Intel was using TSMC 6NM and the die area was probably going to be at least 400MM2,I suspected prices might not be that hot! Intel is quite clearly throwing the kitchen sink at these GPUs,ie,the best node they could get access to(TSMC 6NM) and 16GB of GDDR6,which is more than what the RTX3070 and RX6700XT,so I expect costs are not great either. But being Intel they also like large margins too,although did half expect they might drop margins to get one up on Nvidia/AMD,but I suspect if they can actually keep to RRP it might not matter.
