Advice to msft Board of Directores, accelerate share buybacks now!
Gates and Ballmer, now it is the perfebt time ot invest in the very own company. Donot let some $70 billions sitting there earning close to nothing, put some of these money into MSFT shares, earnings 3.5 dividend and potential capital gains of average 8% a year!!!!
20% shares bought back and cancelled is the same thing as grwoing your business by 20%. Just do the smart thing!
If buying back shares is the same as growing their business then they should buy all the sahres back and take it private. Bingo! 100% growth.
No, that's just silly. Buying back shares only works if it isn't a way to falsely inflate the stock price. The $60 billion they've spent on buybacks in the last 5 or 6 years hasn't helped the share price. Dumping more money down that rat hole isn't really an idea at all. Much less a good one.
