You see there is no hype as in fact there is a lot of negative hysteria and bashing while we are heading North....
Our climb to $50.00 is based on pure fundamentals and we will drag the DOW with us t0o 17000.

MSFT is up because the market is up and that is what MSFT is tracking. It's as simple as that.
Open the DOW, NASDAQ and MSFT charts in adjacent tabs and select equal spans, say three months or six months and compare. You could almost superimpose one on top of another because the general curves are identical.
MSFT is in no way outperforming anything at this point and shouldn't be expected to.
