Let's for argument's sake assume that the final judgement in the MSFT case is the worst possible outcome for the company...That is that MSFT is cut up into pieces. How bad would that really be for me, a really small shareholder (I bought $3,000 worth ...more or less at 85)?Now I have read a couple counterdictory points. My favorite one (because I wouldnt get burned!) is that even if MSFT is chopped up, it doensnt make much difference to me because I'll get a peice of each company... Case in point...The ATT break up...Investors in the original ATT came out ahead because of a number of the baby bells have done quite well... The negative argument is that microsoft has all been all but printing money with Windows etc... And that with a loss of the monopoly, prices will drop, and with it profits and my stock...Since I am realitively new too investing in individual stocks I would appreciate some more knowledgeble fools views...
