MSFT Shares Can't Get a Break

I've been to many Microsoft shareholder meetings and they were all the same. Microsoft would pooh-pooh optimistic analyst projects, blow them out of the water, and at the meeting act humble and sheepish for making Wall Street look so foolish.

Not much has changed, except for MSFT share prices. Every quarter is a new record, though the growth is steady instead of explosive.

Take this past quarter. Microsoft pulled in almost $6 billion in profits, making Wall Street look stupid once again. So how did the stock do? It remains as limp as a dead nightcrawler.

What is going to take to give MSFT shares some legs? You tell me at [email protected]
