Bill Gates Says Goodbye To Microsoft Shares…Millions At A Time!

| Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

bill gates sells millions of shares of microsoft

What's the deal, Bill? You ready to make the move to Mac???

Bill Gates has been selling off Microsoft shares by the millions, which is likely to make investors in the company pret-ty concerned.

Regulatory docs show that Gates sold 5 million shares on Feb 3, and ANOTHER 5 million on Feb 2!

According to SEC records, Bill has sold 90 million shares in the past year! At the moment, he holds 591 million shares, which equals around 7% of 8.4 billion total, and he continues to be the "largest single stockholder"…for now.

Microsoft officials have said that Gates is selling off Microsoft shares and investing elsewhere in an effort to diversify his holdings.

Is it just us, or does it sounds like Bill Gates has lost some confidence in Microsoft?

We suppose we can't blame him. If this were 1995, we'd be shocked, but times are changing and Microsoft shares just ain't what they used to be!

Thoughts???

    He's starting to look like a tired old business man.

    hamnip obviously learned a new word today but does not know what it means. Perhaps he should look in the mirror for the answer.

    "Regulatory docs show that Gates sold 5 million shares on Feb 3, and ANOTHER 5 million on Feb 2!"

    It would have made much more sense if you had put February second before the third.
    He CAN'T sell 5 million shares on the third, then another 5 million on the second. He CAN sell 5 million shares on the second, then another 5 million on the third.

    Hey Bill,
    -
    I presume you still support The Obama Regime like Oprah still does.
    -
    Is Obama all you imagined he'd be?
    -
    Why do you hate America so much?

    UH OH! I suppose he wants to stay the richest man in America. He can do that even if Microsoft tanks by selling.

    He is an elite, I'm sure he knows whats coming in the future as far as the internet, Obama and Jay Rockefeller want the internet shut down via cyber security,net neutrality, Egpyt style shutdown or anyway possible. mainstream media is losing their arse to the internet and it sheds an unfavorable light on U.S. Government.

    It's a smart move anyway you look at it. He isn't over the company anymore. Spreading out is money is a good idea.

    DEAR STUP… ER PEREZ:

    YOU KNOW NOTHING. JUST BECAUSE YOU USE A MAC TO EDIT YOUR DIPPY RAG, DOESNT MEAN THE MASSES USE A MAC TOO. OVER 80% OF THE WORLDS COMPUTERS RUN OFF WINDOWS. STICK TO CROTCH SHOTS AND MAKING INNAPROPRIATE REMARKS ABOUT 16 YEAR OLD BOYS.

    this is irresponsible journalism. Its well known the reason he's taking money out is for his current charity work (If I'm remembering correctly it was the elimination of Polio). In order to get the capital from your stock portfolio for such an act you must sell stock (duh). This isn't news; especially when you consider that he's worth billions.

    lolol hamnip

    basically i dont know what shares are seems anyone like me would lose if they invest but guys like this get rich so i stay out of it
    i guess we worry when he gets to 50%

    Re: CumpasFilms – LMAO. I died laughing at 'just because you use a mac to edit your ”dippy rag” .' Totally agree with you ,tho!



  13. 13

    DEAR PEREZ IF YOU DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FINANCES AND STOCK MARKETS! JUST STICK IN TO WHAT YOU KNOW! DONT MAKE A FOOL OF YOURSELF… SOMEONE SAID IRRESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM, TOTALLY AGREE WITH THAT PERSON. STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW

    He and Buffet would both have more money that that Mexican who's the richest in the world now, if they hadn't given billions to charity.

    Re: KDIZZLL – I was so hoping there would be another intelligent person here who would pick up on that fact. I'd love to know what they know, no matter how scary it would be. I guess we should be taking more time to connect and learn from each other via the internet rather than wasting our time on Perez. If more people knew (and believed) the truth, I think there would be a chance we could make some changes. We are the ones in control of our politicians - or at least they allow us to think so.

    Perez,

    ur going to be very wealthy some day too bcuz u work so hard and so much…and u 2 will want to have a diversified portfolio to spread the risks. Please learn as much as you can about this bcuz things can always change and for our own security, learn what u can…

    People are finally realizing that Windows sucks compared to Mac and he's bailing out while he has the chance. Windows is a dead platform unless they do something drastic.
    By bailing out he's showing that in the next 5 years or so, they ain't gonna have nuthin.

    Steve Jobs wins in the end:)

    Selling shares of MSFT is nothing new. The foundation regularly sells large quantities of shares and at times is REQUIRED to sell. Don't read ANYTHING into Perez's comments. He is not an expert on business and knows next to nothing about Gates nor the wonderful Gates Foundation. This has nothing to do with Bill's confidence (or lack of) in Microsoft. Apples vs. Oranges…no pun intended!



  20. 20

    That and their new Windows versions have been totally sucking.

    Re: luvs2tango – Ok you're talking alot of shit, but I'm not seeing the Repubs come up with ANY KIND OF PLAN. I mean you're ready to blame Obama for things that Bush bestowed upon us (Iraq and Afgh wars, loan deregulation, Not paing any attention to the Fed until it was too late), but not ready to offer up any solutions or even bother to know what youre talking about. Why do you hate America!?!?
