Microsoft In business school the first thing they teach you about CEOs is: it is the CEO’s job to increase the shareholder value of the company. Since taking the position Ballmer has decreased shareholder value, as reflected by stock price, by -56.63%. That. Is. Not. Good . . . Microsoft should be searching for a new CEO right now.

The article is painfully flawed. A CEO is there to keep the company being profitable, not simply to inflate the share price. The value of stock options does not equate to real value. Look at Nortel as an example.

Microsoft is posting near record profits these days, they're not in any danger.
