    I haven't started any hardcore investing but to a point I would care about the company I am investing in. Industries like alcoholic drinks are profitable industries so are cigarettes. I would invest in alcohol but I am not sure about cigarettes. I don't think I would be a considered socially responsible investor but if a company goes against my morals or beliefs I definitely wouldn't invest in them.
