The following Yahoo stock graph speaks for itself. Over the last two years Apple’s stock has soared, increasing by nearly 400%. Microsoft’s has barely budged. One’s a growth stock, the other a value stock — like a utility, I’m told. With Microsoft’s market capitilization ($286 billion) being about five times that of Apple’s, and its revenue last year ($40 billion) nearly three times the iTune maker’s, I had a strange thought. Why doesn’t Microsoft buy Apple? Certainly has the money to do it. Seems I’m not the only one with this ‘strange’ idea. See this article at TechNewsWorld.
