Do you think that M$ will ever go out of business?
I don't see that happening in my lifetime, so this news doesn't really sway me into thinking that M$ is going under
Hi, I'm a shareholder, and jumping out the window was my idea.
i have seen some more inapproapriate parodys than that.
namely the 'my name is osama binladen, and 9/11 was my idea' one
How rich is the guy? Is he selling shares to tuck away into a trust fund or to reinvest in something riskier? It's all down to his reasoning, I doubt it's because he's worried about MS going down the toilet.
Wish I had 75 million shares to sell..
yeah 2.018 billion US wouldn't be so bad...
He's holding on to 82% of his shares? He must have faith in the company's up-coming products.
For anyone wondering if this is some kind of omen for the future of Microsoft, I'm of the opinion that speculating about the financial goings-on of mega corporations is usually a fool's errand.
I'd sell my stock too. If you can gain more off investing in gold bullion than any other thing, including oil at the moment, what's the sense of holding on to it ?
this feels like a non-story to me .. he sold 18% of his shares.. big deal
My name is Kate McCann, and leaving windows open was my idea.
Diversification is financially prudent if a little bit strange given he knows the future potential of Microsoft.
Could be he just needs some cash for Christmas presents and the like
He probably wants to invest a little of his fortune elsewhere. I don't really see this as news worthy to anyone, other than the other shareholders.
my name is george bush, and declaring war on the middle east and muslims was my idea
(that was the second worst one i heard, none of these were made by me, im not a rascist noob)
He's manipulating share holders. Bill Gates done that before, just before the release of a major product - the aim is to make more money
I'm Joseph Fritzel, and no windows was my idea.
Steve Balmer is officially under CEO suicide watch. CEO's start selling stocks in small chunks in preparation to RESIGN from a company cause surely the CEO of Microsoft doesn't need any extra Holiday money for gifts, not with all those Zunes lying around the office.
Hi I'm Steve Balmer and Microsoft's stock dipping below $20 was my idea (but after I sold all mine for $27 a piece)
What's going on in that picture, is he playing Kinectimals for the first time? That at least would kinda explain the sell off.
What with the resounding success of Windows 7, the relaunch of the XBox360 and soon to be released Kinect, the positive release of Windows Phone 7 and successful launch of Zune here in the Europe. The kick Google into touch launch of Bing and the ever reliable new release of Office 2010.
Yep, what an idiot for keeping hold of the 82% of shares he still owns!
I'll give him all my savings for those shares
