11:33 EDTMSFTMicrosoft falls after firm says CEO change might not be enough
Microsoft (MSFT) needs more than a CEO change to overcome its current difficulties, research firm Argus wrote in a note to investors. WHAT'S NEW: Putting someone new in the CEO chair will not solve all of Microsoft's problems, Argus contended. "Systemic weakness" at the tech giant is preventing it from beating the challenges it is facing, the firm said. Microsoft's best bet would be to hire an outsider with a great deal of tech experience as its new CEO, but such a candidate might hesitate to take the job, given the company's "reputation as a technology laggard," the firm wrote. On a positive note, the company has impressive assets that new leaders could leverage, noted Argus, which kept a Hold rating on the shares. OF NOTE: Bloomberg, citing sources, reported last night that Microsoft is competing with American Express (AXP) to take an equity stake in Foursquare, the maker of an app for checking in at physical locations. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Microsoft gave back 0.8% to $33.30.
