FOR THOSE THAT THINK MICROSOFTS PROFITS ARE SLUMPING, CONSIDER THIS !!!


This is a stunning reminder about the company’s power. It takes Microsoft only 10 hours of business to exceed Red Hat’s entire quarterly profit. Skeptical? Check out the math, and nine other facts about Microsoft’s profits.

Microsoft today announced quarterly revenue of $14.4 billion and net income of $4.93 billion. In other words, Microsoft’s daily net income is about $55 million. That’s $55 million in pure profit every 24 hours. Do some quick math and you’ll learn it takes Microsoft only about…

* 10 hours or so (yes, hours!) to exceed Red Hat’s quarterly net income of $20.5 million.
* four days to exceed Research In Motion’s quarterly net income of $187.9 million.
* four days to exceed Starbucks’ quarterly net income of $205 million.
* one week to exceed Nike’s quarterly net income of $350.8 million.
* two weeks to exceed McDonalds’ quarterly net income of $762 million.
* two weeks to exceed Apple’s quarterly net income of $770 million.
* 18 days to exceed Google’s quarterly net income of $1 billion.
* 23 days to exceed Coca-Cola’s quarterly net income of $1.26 billion.
* five weeks to exceed IBM’s quarterly net income of $1.85 billion.
* 10 weeks to exceed Wal-Mart’s quarterly net income of $3.9 billion.

For a dead company, Microsoft’s profits certainly look lively.

Microsoft is definitely not dying because it makes money even while it sleeps.


Sony seems to be dying off a bit.....but Microsoft makes money from everything from Windows Vista, to Xbox Live/Live Arcade, Windows Media Player, to the Microsoft Sidewinder, Microsoft Live Conference Studio and their countless other products.


I doubt Microsoft can ever go anywhere because they rely too much on multiple streaming markets for income, always investing.


Sony will be in some shaky ground but they won't be able to go anywhere either because they rely on multiple markets still, not just playstation but Sony TV, the HDTV, Sony CD Player, widescreen HDMI and Blu Ray.


If you think about it, the only company out there really in trouble is someone who relies all on one market I suppose.



If Nintendo for instance, always relies on handhelds and pretty much that alone.........they could be in danger because handhelds are not a sustainable market.....fads always change, hard to predict but they might be in trouble come 2010.

Mcrosoft has always been strong. The company has also surrounded itself with the biggest and brightest people. Unlike other companies Microsoft can handle several CEO changes
