Feeling Like Lead

A recent comment:

mini, more support for your position that MSFT needs to make radical changes (vs the "everything's great, we're kicking ass and taking prisoners" crowd): 10213336.html?cm_ven=YAHOO&cm_cat=FREE&cm_ite=NA

So that link brings up the story Microsoft Feels like Lead by Bill Snyder. Snippet:

"There's no real reason to sell Microsoft now, but there's no compelling reason to buy," says Pat Adams, chief investment office of Choice Funds, which holds the stock.

You know, maybe we've all died and this is Purgatory! Oh, we can jump around the stage and yell out that we're in an innovative Heaven, but the more things change (NASDAQ, other tech companies going up) the more things stay the same (our flat-butted stock). Heaven help you if you didn't cash out of your lowly stock options when given a chance.

To quickly close, a small bit of chart-porn via another recent comment:

You are right, this feels like hell. Under Ballmer our stock has gone to new lows and it seems on going down. All the cost cutting stuff, all the outsourcing to India - makes no difference. We probably don't even know how bad it is as well - it sucks when your CFO is leaving eh?
