Companies with Shareholder Perks
(based on the past record)
Some companies send a gift or coupons to their shareholders. Although such perks can be discontinued any time, and the fact that a gift was sent out on one year does not mean they will send it out again in the future, but we can always hope... (go to Shareholder Perk Gallery to see the photos of perks we've received so far)
