Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
In a video released by Stansberry & Associates, Dan Ferris, editor of the Extreme Value investment research publication, described the sharp drop Microsoft shares recently suffered makes "no sense."
The computer software giant's stock fell roughly 11% on Friday. USA Today, among other news outlets, attributed the fall to Microsoft announcing lower than expected earnings last week. http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2013/07/19/tech-stocks-microsoft/2567621/
In the video, Ferris commented on the drop. “It is the dumbest thing I’ve seen in the stock market in years,” stated Ferris. “Everybody acts like Windows falling a little bit is some great tragedy. What horrible thing happened? I really don’t know because sales were up 5% and the operating income was up right around 23%. So why this stock should be pushed down 11% in one day, makes no sense.”
The video was released this week in the Stansberry Media Minute. You can watch it here.
