Share prices of Microsoft tumble

After running stable for more than 5 years, Microsoft stocks have tumbled 11.4% on Q3 reports.

I had blogged about this earlier:
http://abhishekkant.blogspot.com/2006/04/microsoft-announces-fiscal-year-2006.html

i had just sold my stock in Microsoft (whatever puny amount i have and can afford - believe me u'll laugh when u hear the amount) prior to Q3 results for an entirely different reason. The reason was that Microsoft stock had stayed flat for 5 years without providing any gains for its investors for so long. On the other hand, stock markets (and job market) in India are still on fire and giving much higher returns. Should i invest in the job market as well (wink.. wink..)

My outlook on the new products/ services is that while core OS will take sometime to come mainstream (give it 2 years), the Live services, XBOX and Dynamics will make a killing. The STB (Server and Tools) business should remain flat.
