  • Steve Balmer is a Founder and current owner of MSFT. Quite a different situation. Q financials were fine. Now they need to learn how to BS a great future story like Steve Jobs did.

  • Microsoft 3Q earnings beat Street
    Microsoft third-quarter earnings beat Street, revenue jumps 18 percent!


    Maybe Steve Balmer is doing a good job! MSFT up over 2.36% in after hours.

  • Steve Ballmer will never do a good job no matter how good he does, the PC is dying because of Windows 8 flopping no matter how much it sells, and Microsoft will be gone in a year since 5 years ago

  • Why such a negative headline when the earnings were better than expected, with profits up 19% and the stock responding positively? Got a predisposition to dislike no matter what the results?

  • Then why do you bother to follow their results? Follow a company you like or one where you at least dont house ill will. Its better for the psyche and probably your wallet too.
