The future is bright despite 8 being a flop....tomorrow the company goes ex dividend...below is info from Sizemor Capital
But there are still times when I would kill for a return to the Start button…
I've argued for months that "tech is the new tobacco." And by this I mean that big technology giants-Microsoft chief among them-are currently priced for no growth and are evolving into dividend-focused cash cows.
If none of Microsoft's growth initiative amount to much-if the new Xbox fails to impress, if Windows tablets never gain much market share, in the Windows Phone remains an also-ran, etc.-then Microsoft is still attractive as a cheap dividend payer with a massive hoard of cash and stable, if gently declining, businesses in operating systems, servers, and office productivity software.
And if Microsoft's work pays off and any of these new initiatives wind up being a success, then Microsoft quickly becomes the buy of the decade.
Disclosures: Sizemore Capital is long MSFT.
