But the video is out of context. A short video circulating since January 12th on Facebook and Twitter asserts to show the arrest of "French terrorists" in Mali, some accounts sometimes attributing to the Russian Wagner group. The video actually shows the presentation to the press of suspects after the assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moses in July 2021.

I'm very curious how the quarter numbers appear coming week. The numbers can not be bad. That also knows the management. And maybe the Activision Deal was already in the fall of 2021 on a good way.

How I Come on? Important insiders sold hard-working shares in November. First of all, Nadella itself: 838,584 Shares sold on 23 November for a total of $ 285.3 million.

But do not worry: Nadellas strong owners' perspective remains intact. With a value of approximately $ 221 million, its Microsoft share position continues to be significantly more than its annual salary.

Release of Royal Cabinet

 Release of Royal Cabinet © Provided by The Baltic Times Rabat - Here is a press release from Royal Cabinet :. "Following the ignoble attack perpetrated by the Militia Militia and its supports against the territory of the United Arab Emirates, His Majesty King Mohammed VI - God assists him - had, that day, a telephone interview with his Highness Sheikh Mohamed Ben Zayed Al Nahyan, Hirier Prince of Abu Dhabi and Vice-Commander Supreme Armed Forces Emirati.

The Microsoft share still has air up

Currently we get the paper for $ 302.65 (as of January 19, 2022). The price-profit ratio of 33.5 is still quite low compared to some competitors. The fair value of the stock I see in the face of growth opportunities at $ 350. This results in a rural potential of around 15%. But caution: Take a look at the portfolios of your ETFs before you buy the Microsoft share. Because lump risks are to be avoided.
