ethical dilemma chap 1 16 7
Ethical Dilemma (Chap.1, 16.7)
  • Sandy and Phil decide to go to Sandy's cousin Larry, who is a stockbroker. Larry tells them the only fee he will charge is for transactions. Larry recommends stocks of several well-known companies which they purchase. Three months later, Larry tells them that they need to sell the stocks and buy several others. Three months later, the same thing happens. At the end of they had sold each of the stocks for more than they had paid, but the total dollar value of their portfolio had declined, since the transaction fees exceeded their capital gains.
    • a. Do you think Larry behaved ethically? Explain.
    • b. Would Larry have a personal reason for handling Sandy and Phil's portfolio as he did? Explain.
