Ballmer to Employees: Nobody Panic

Wall Street analysts covering Microsoft have reacted negatively to Microsoft’s FY 2007 spending outlook. A number of Microsoft watchers have downgraded their ratings, citing Microsoft’s hefty (and vaguely explained) spending plans for next year. In an attempt to stem employee concern over Microsoft’s tumbling stock prices since last Thursday, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer issued an internal memo to employees, justifying Microsoft’s planned spending spree. Ballmer’s bottom line: In spite of negative external reaction, “I’ve never been more confident that we are making the right investments.”
