Hedge Fund Billionaire to Come up with Justness List for Corporations

Hmm sounds like a good idea to me.
Just Capital’s first big splash will be a "justness" list, coming this fall, ranking America’s largest companies from most just to least. To determine what just behavior is, exactly, the group surveyed 43,000 people last year asking them what they expect from corporations. “The No. 1 thing Americans felt companies need to prioritize are employee pay and benefits,” Whittaker says. “People were absolutely united regardless of political stripe in their lack of trust in corporations today.”
I wonder if you could correlate this "Justness ranking" with stock appreciation or not? It would also be interesting to see if the "most Just" companies are also the most profitable/highest revenue.
