down more than 20 cents within the last 10 minutes of trading. Bill Gates will not be happy. When he sold all those shares; they were sold strategically not to lower the price but when he buys back he buys back with a vengence. Shorters will get the wrath of Bill Gates.
you are saying....one of the richest man on the planet has to always sell and purchase stocks and everything under his own name? So, Bill Gates can't create an account under some sort of company or funds? A bit naive aren't you?
Fortunately for the shorts, Bill Gates is a humanitarian and he's not all about money. But if he wanted to, he could manipulated the #$%$ out of msft stock. Sell a billion dollars worth of stock, but not change the price much. Then use that same $1 billion to aggressively buy back, causing huge price surge. His remaining $15 billions of stocks, could be worth $20 billions easily.
nah, loading up on calls and shares. All-in baby! For the last decade, msft hasn't done anything but upgrading their windows softwares. Now they have a revolutionary W8, surface Pros, and Xbox kinect that will revoluationize gaming forever. Puts and shorts are for morons (especially at the bottom).
