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!
