    16 times 2007 Earnings w/dividend

    This stock is starting to look like Altria, Colgate, and all of the other consumer non durables. The only difference is that they grew quarter to quarter earnings at a pace of 16%....

    Microsoft is still a technology growth stock... Unfortunately this sector is out of favor...

    How many more quarters before mutual fund managers simply buy the dividend and the low PE.... My guess is that they are loading up the truck in this range for the typical end of the year spike.

    • Not much of a dividend, but do you really think Microsoft will increase or decrease forecasts for 2007 with Vista and all of their new wifi gear on the horizon.

      They even have a new laptop they are develping with Portal Player that has an IPOD like device that is detachable.

      This stock is a great buy for the price.

      • Microsoft does not want their stock selling off much further. They have billions in cash for a greater buyback of stock and they also have issued tons of options to their younger execs at these prices.

        Everything happens for a reason. They are intentionally keeping their own stock down. That is why they paid the one time $3 dividend last year.

        Next year we fly to $40
