Stock Review: Bill Gates Happy With the “New” Microsoft (NASDAQ MSFT)

Bill Gates sat down with Bloomberg Television anchor Erik Schatzker at the Sibos conference in Boston, where they discussed Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ MSFT)’s strategy, the Ebola outbreak, his philanthropic efforts, financial payment systems in Africa and more.

On whether Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is moving fast enough, Gates said, “I’m very happy with what he’s doing. I see a new sense of energy. There’s a lot of opportunity there, some things the company isn’t the leader on, and he sees that he needs to change that.”

On Ebola hitting the U.S., Gates said, “…the fact that this Dallas patient was identified, the contacts are being traced, I feel confident the CDC is very much on top of that. I wish every country had a health system like that…the US government’s really stepping up on this and I think that is going to let the world get on top of it.”

On whether we’ll see him courtside at the Staples Center cheering on the L.A. Clippers with new owner Steve Ballmer, Gates said, “I’m not a guy who spends a ton of time watching sports games, but my friends who own teams, I enjoy spending time with them. So at some point probably.”

News on Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ MSFT)

Some of the quotes from Bill Gates:
On Bitcoins:”Well bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be. Bitcoin is better than currency in that you don’t have to be physically in the same place. And of course for large transactions currency can get pretty inconvenient. The customers we’re talking about aren’t trying to be anonymous.”

On Apple Pay: “Apple Pay’s a great example of how a cell phone that identifies its user in a pretty strong way lets you make a transaction that should be very, very inexpensive. So the fact that in any application I can buy something, that’s fantastic. The fact I don’t need a physical card anymore, I just do that transaction and you’re going to be quite sure about who it is on the other end, that is a real contribution.”
