Microsoft Shareholders Turn on Gates, AstraZeneca’s Injunction Issue, and 3 More Hot Stocks

Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT): Three of Microsoft’s 20 largest shareholders are requesting that founder and chairman Bill Gates resign his post, as they believe that he may block “the adoption of new strategies and would limit the power of a new chief executive to make substantial changes.” With 4.5 percent of the company under his belt, Gates is the largest individual shareholder of the company.
