DETAILS

Chart 1: While Microsoft was managed by Bill Gates, its stock price and market value was growing as fast as those of Apple managed by Steve Jobs. Chart shows 200-days averaged prices on a logarithmic scale.
Chart 2: While Microsoft stock was changing in the range -10/+22% during the last year and currently is 10% higher than it was (not visible on this chart), related to the NASDAQ Composite index it only changed in -6/+8% range. Most of MSFT changes are due to changes in the whole market.
