Animal Rights Investing: Does one size fit all?

The answer is no, of course. No more does one size investment portfolio fit that of another person than one person's vegetarianism match that of another.

At one extreme is the vegan agenda (which I respect greatly). The theme could be characterized as no usage of animals in any form in corporate activities. At the other extreme would be the animal rights agenda (which I also respect greatly). Here the positioning would be to utilize animals, but only when necessary, and never cruelly.

What's an investor to do? One answer is to bury your head in the sand. Another is to dig deeper into the data. A third--probably the best--is to do your best with the information you have. Rely on a financial advisor. Use online tools that help you make decisions. In the absence of a perfect choice, make a good choice.
