Hmm what I get from this article is that one should avoid the stock market if one is not able to understand it. I'm sure if I had stock in DR that I'd be thinking "WTF?".

I switched away from using DR as my primary payment processor at the beginning of this year. I knew they were big (having absorbed so many other payment processors), but I had never realized they were a publicly traded stock.

I find it somewhat encouraging that a company was able to go public on a percentage of the earnings of small software developers.

Hmm. I guess you could take DR's annual gross revenue, subtract out the 27% that is Symantec, multiply the remainder by a factor of 6 to 8, and have an idea of the size of the shareware industry.
