12:44 EDTMSFT, GOOGValue investors want Microsoft to exit the search business, Barron's reports
A vocal minority of Microsoft (MSFT) shareholders, many of them value investors, would love to see Microsoft exit search, Barron's reports. The idea, floated by a CNBC commentator last week, goes like this: Microsoft would turn Bing over to Facebook in exchange for shares in the social-networking service. Microsoft could receive Facebook shares, currently worth two times Bing revenues, roughly $4B, which Rick Sherlund of Nomura Securities posits as a 4% stake. Microsoft currently owns a 1.6% stake in Facebook. Barron's Plugged In columnist Mark Veverka contends that the transaction would still allow Microsoft to achieve the two primary objectives behind its current ownership of Bing: making money off its Internet traffic and preventing Google (GOOG) from monopolizing search advertising.
