Do you mean buying their own stocks?

@Iannan13 no, its a concept in econ that the more goods and services you buy, for example: if you owned 12 videogames, you would always be happier if someone gave you a 13th videogame for free, and if you didn't like the videogame you could sell it to someone and increase your utility that way. I suppose the same could be true for stocks but, I think your talking about something a little different.
