A Microsoft Maven Speaks: Do Investors Actually Listen to These Idiots?

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) news: Microsoft’s Perfect Storm [Apple Inc., Google Inc] – Seeking Alpha

A year ago, Microsoft seemed on the verge of supremacy in mobile devices. Microsoft had just launched Windows 8 and Phone in time for the holiday season. The natural order of things, in which Microsoft (or Intel, or both) were dominant, had been inexplicably upset by Apple’s iOS and Google’s (GOOG) Android devices. Many expected that this order would soon be restored.

Nobody in their right mind expected that.  Even more embarassing, how could an analyst who writes something like the above be expected to be taken seriously in his predictions that follow that whooper?

Sell-side analysts are said to be liars and thieves, but apparently the buy-side guys are morons and maniacs.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Who thought Microsoft was going to surge in the mobile space? Their numbers have never been better than single-digit percentage of market, and Windows Phone 7 actually saw a loss of market percentage!
