Bill Gates Dumps His Microsoft Shares and Buys Shares Of Goldman Sachs, Monsanto, and Exxon Mobil

Posted in Bill Gates, Finance, Microsoft at 8:00 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Exxon

Summary: Financial contributions from the Gates Foundation go to some of the very same companies whose actions this foundation pretends to counter

THE Gates Foundation, a big investor of BP [1, 2, 3] and other companies that destroy the planet, the economy, and even retail (CocaCola and Wal-Mart, for example, are receiving extra funding from Gates) continues to reveal a rather disturbing agenda. At the end of last year we explained that Gates was busy creating more monopolies, thereby taking more power over the entire system. He seems to be following Rockefeller’s footsteps, not just actively working with Rockefeller descendants. Oil, monopolies, and lots of power. What’s not to like? By putting money in Exxon, for example, Gates actually contributes to global warming denial.

Based on several new articles [1, 2], Gates continues to sell his Microsoft shares (not much confidence in the company’s future).

Since the beginning of the year, Gates has reduced his stake in the Bellevue, Wash. based company by nearly 150 million shares. To me, this seems like more than diversifying your portfolio, or selling some shares to buy another house.

Another house is what the Gates Foundation recently built itself. This foundation operates just like a business and it invests in some really vicious companies that are detrimental to solidarity and to the environment. But hey, it makes a lot of money so what’s not to like?

One journalist asks, “Has Microsoft lost its edge?”

Bill Gates continues to sell his stock in the company. Between the beginning of May and today, Gates has sold more than 20 million shares. He still owns an enormous 620 million shares though, so stock analyst Roger Nachman’s suggestion that maybe other stock holders should sell too is a bit off.

In relation to Microsoft’s stock, CNN asks (in the headline): “Why does everyone hate Microsoft?”

“Jefferies Lowers Estimates, Price Target for Microsoft” says another headline and one last headline says that “S&P Downgrades Microsoft to Hold”:

Just a few months ago S&P were touting technology stocks. They said that tech stocks tend to do well in the 2nd year of a bull market. Now they think that the slower growth expected in the 2nd half of this year will affect tech and Microsoft.

Earlier today we wrote about Microsoft approaching new lows. In order for Gates’ money to be future-proof, he increasingly diversifies. How so?

First of all, Gates is increasing his investments in Monsanto:

Bill Gates buys Ecolab Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc. The, Monsanto Company, during the 3-months ended 06/30/2010, according to the most recent filings of his investment company, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust.

For background, also see:

We previously explained how Gates relates to the World Bank, IMF, and the rest of those controversial/notorious establishments (ask the Greek about these debt predators). The Gates Foundation must really not give a damn about its image anymore. Now it invests in criminals in suits (with many impending charges pressed against them). Yes, that would be Goldman:

The Gates Foundation Buys Shares Of Goldman Sachs

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation took advantage of sagging stock prices in the second quarter to add Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS), one of the most storied names in finance, to its portfolio, according to a 13F regulatory filing

When one thinks of the Gates Foundation, one should think more about BP, Goldman Sachs, and Wal-Mart, not hungry children in Africa. Need it be added that Goldman Sachs recently got slammed for contributing to world hunger, just for profit? The Gates Foundation is now contributing financially to the very same establishment that causes starvation. But hey, it’s all about power, ego, and money, right?

“Bill Gates says banks are dinosaurs, well, some dinosaurs run real fast and bite the hell out of you.”
