Are these sentences correct:

1) He advertised three products of his friend's company.
2) He advertised products of his friend's company.

3) He advertised three products of that stupid company.
4) He advertised products of that stupid company.

Hello, Navi—I see no reason why all four sentences should not be considered correct, but perhaps you're onto something. Using "three products" rather than simply "products" seems to make (1) more palatable than (2), and having "that stupid company" instead of "his friend's company" seems likewise to make the construction more palatable.

Instead of (1), I would likely say: "He advertised three of his friend's company's products." Instead of (2), I would likely say: "He advertised things produced by his friend's company." But I find nothing wrong with (3) or (4) and see no reason why all four sentences should not be considered correct. If you think there is any reason why they should be considered incorrect, please let it be known.
