An SEC filing released today indicates, Bill Gates sold 4.6 million Microsoft shares recently. That action lowered his holdings to 330,141,164 shares in the company. Former CEO Steve Ballmer owns 333,252,990 shares. The sale therefore dipping Gates’ holdings under those of Ballmer, the second CEO of the company. As ComputerWorld’s Gregg Keizer wrote in January : At his 10-year pace of selling stock, Gates will hand over the shareholding crown to Ballmer before mid-2014.
