  • Microsoft High Priced Purchases 0 comments
    Oct 9, 2011 3:40 PM | about stocks: MSFT, GOOG, YHOO

    When Microsoft purchased Skype for  8.5 billion, someone on the Skype side of the purchase stated, "Microsoft made a very compelling offer."  

    Translation- we ripped the shit out of them! I dont see how it's a justfiable purchase at the pirce they paid-- 

    But when they purchased a stake in Facebook, most analysts laughed and derided Ballmer. Now, obvioulsy, it looks like a brilliant investment and it just MIGHT help Softy take down Google!

    Stocks: MSFT, GOOG, YHOO
