Disagree. Microsoft are laying the foundations of massive future success. They are making sure they are going to be around for decades more. They are going to eat Apple's lunch. Google might be a bit more difficult.
The stock is better than any bank account, safe and pays huge dividends. The sock keeps splitting and doubles. So if you have a 1000 shares your will have 2000 in a year most times. I think that may have slowed though. What has not slowed is the dividends. I get huge dividend checks but have been investing since first year. The dividend is supposed to be raised again. They say if it goes up again, people and funds will put huge amounts of money into it for income paying dividends. It is supposed to happen by next year and you will reap huge dividends for investing in a steady eady safe stock. Not so bad after all really.
