Goldman analyst Sherlund seeks upgrade

Perennial top-ranked Microsoft analyst Rick Sherlund is leaving Goldman Sachs to perhaps work as an investor. He may start a hedge fund but first he wants to work on the buy-side, according to a Wall Street Journal story that broke the news Saturday.

I think he should forget hedge funds and try working as a reporter. The Journal related how Sherlund confirmed Microsoft was hooking up with Novell last week:

“Mr. Sherlund’s team called the San Francisco hotel where Microsoft had said it would hold a news conference of unspecified nature. He confirmed the partnership after the hotel told the caller that the meeting would be in the ‘Microsoft-Novell’ room, he said.”

How about covering Microsoft for the Associated Press?
