- Following months of reports, speculation, debate, and much else, Alan Mulally states he isn't leaving Ford (F) for Microsoft (MSFT), according to the AP.
- Microsoft's shares, which have already sold off due to dimming expectations Mulally will be the company's next CEO, are declining some more AH. Ford, meanwhile, is up 1.2%.
- Assuming Mulally is out of the running, the top candidates to succeed Steve Ballmer include server/cloud chief Satya Nadella (previous), ex-Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, and ex-Skype CEO Tony Bates.
