You clearly haven't been watching this stock very long. This is just the usual rise before the fall. It will start to approach $30, maybe go a bit above, and then will fall to $26. BFD...Zune probably created the same effect when it first came out...you see where that one is. The only way this POS will stay above $30 for any reasonable period is if the BOD finally dumps Fat Boy and She-Male; then, you may see some meaningful increase in the stock price.
Whatever you know is good , but I sold my MSFT now and I am looking to buy again ! I made a small gain and it was good . If I can repeate that again , I will try ! MSFT made two lows in may and nov 2012 , now you see it is time to sell stocks collected at those lows ! I think that we will see a High in april or may and then another High in nov-dec 2013 !!!! Today MSFT hit HI 29.82 !!! 77.7 mill shares traded ! I am a technical guy , you see ! It is good talking with you , thanks ! Garik
