Which division of CBS, or CBS Corp as a whole? For CBS Corp as a whole, it more than likely is.

You can't buy shares of stock in just one unit or one division, you have to buy stock in the whole corporation. So, how much do the shareholders care about each unit within the company? And are shareholders always looking for short-term profit and not caring all that much about the company's long-term prospects?

Shareholders do care if a division is pulling down the corp. bottom line.

Certainly seems that way sometimes (short term over long term).
