One shareholder suggested that the boycott launched over Starbucks' political stance was hurting sales. Schultz replied, "If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38 percent you got last year, it's a free country. You can sell your shares of Starbucks and buy shares in another company." [NPR via Consumerist]
