A.   Interesting question. Though shareholders own a “little piece” of the company, unless they’re on the board of directors they don’t have much say. Which leads many Rabbis to say that it is considered indirect ownership and is permitted. Some say we should “sell” these stocks along with the rest of our Chametz, and therefore it’s best to do so. All agree however, that we are not to buy or sell these stocks directly during the Passover holiday.
