Short Take: Microsoft maintains momentum at year's end

As 1996 winds up, Microsoft stock is worth slightly more than $80 a share, close to where it began year ago, according to a Reuters report. But after adjusting for a stock split, the value of those shares is up 91 percent. As a result, Bill Gates's stake has risen from $12.4 billion to about $23.6 billion.
