You may see it as that, and you are limited in what you see. The trading of equity securities is what makes the investing in companies more attractive for the investors. It is the liquidity of that investment that allows the investment to be more attractive to the investor. Without the liquidity of the security, many companies wouldn't be able to issue more stock to raise capital for expansions, growth, etc.

So even investing in a well established publicly traded company, is creating jobs, products, etc.
