    MSFT isn't a buy until Balmer leaves.

    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.

    My response? If you put an "L" after (Balmer and Founder) that's what I think.

    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.

    Kudos to Steve Balmer and his management team. 19 % increase in earnings. Great companies execute like MSFT did in difficult environments!
