One has the world watching anxiously to see if he can keep his balance on a high-wire from one peak to the next. The other is Nik Wallenda.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and high-wire-walker Nik Wallenda have something in common. They both walk a fine line at incredible heights.
While Wallenda was able to cross the Grand Canyon untethered last night, investors are wondering if Ballmer can balance Microsoft’s successes of this past year with a major restructuring that will be announced next week.
Microsoft is up over 20% in 2013. At more than $34 per share, the stock is just about $3 away from its 2007 highs. Can Ballmer move shares higher?
We ask Talking Numbers contributors Richard Ross, Global Technical Strategist at Auerbach Grayson, and Enis Taner, Global Macro Editor at RiskReversal.com, to look at Microsoft and decide if this nail-biter will be successful or if there are slips waiting to happen.
