I think that someone made a riddle like this, but I’m stealing his template. I’m not sorry.

My first is the logo of a sponsoring website,
Add my second and you get a reputation,
With my third you get how to buy shares,
Fourth and a pharmaceutical company,
But with my fifth it is a deadly sin,

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ is 'but shares' really 'buy shares'? $\endgroup$ – JonMark Perry Sep 2 '18 at 20:42

    $\begingroup$ You stole it from a three century old kind of riddle that was named "Literary charade". Consider yourself as forgiven ;-) $\endgroup$ – xhienne Sep 2 '18 at 21:29

    $\begingroup$ @QuantumTwinkie I think this is the original, with other similar ones, too (e.g. here) :D $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 3 '18 at 9:54

I think the answer is

Pride

My first is the logo of a sponsoring website,

P is for Podio Patreon (thanks to Rohit Jose for clarifying)
enter image description here

Add my second and you get a reputation,

PR - Public Relations

With my third you get how to buy shares,

PRI - Principles for Responsible Investment

Fourth and a pharmaceutical company,

PRID - NSFW. Not sure about this as it is a device, not a company.

But with my fifth it is a deadly sin,

Pride

  • $\begingroup$ Well I got Patreon for the sponsorship, and how did you get your PRID thing? When I looked it up I got a pharma company $\endgroup$ – Rohit Jose Sep 2 '18 at 21:25
  • $\begingroup$ @RohitJose Ah, yes Patreon makes more sense. I'll edit for that. $\endgroup$ – hexomino Sep 3 '18 at 8:37
