Don't agree with a CEO? Don't like the op-ed that they penned?
When a CEO says or does something that investors don't agree with, Jim Cramer thinks it's important to use the ability to vote.
"If you really hate what the guy said, vote against him. Vote no matter what. That's really important to get proxy. If you really just despise what he said. Now, a lot of people, for instance, voted against Tim Sloan. They didn't want Tim Sloan at Wells Fargo because they felt he was part of it," said Cramer. "I didn't think he was, I thought he was doing a good job. He resigned, but I think the people have to recognize that you have the opportunity. You can sell the stock or you can vote against if you don't like what they say. That's one of the reasons why I think like an Elon Musk. I wish he had been more careful because now he's going to be in front of a judge. And Elon Musk is so important to that company that I just think he has to throw himself on the mercy of the judge."
