I've done some due dilligence and now seems like a good time to get in on MSFT. Do you guys agree? Should I wait longer? site for stock advice:
MSFT will decline in price. It has nothing to do with MSFT. The whole market is set to decline in price and MSFT will simply go down along with everything else. The MSFT bashers will have explanations for MSFT going down. They will never admit the simple fact that the whole market is overpriced. I believe that as a percentage , MSFT will actually decline less than the S and P 500. But the bashers will simply blame the people at MSFT for the decline. When it overperforms the declining market in general by going down less than the average stock, the bashers will still blame the co., not the economy.
I don't know at this point. I thought getting in before 4Q was a great time, considering they sold 3 million more units of the Kinect sensor, coupled with the new Windows, I thought for sure the record revenues that I expected and they reported, would at least boost this stock to $34. Instead, the stock drops. I came to the conclusion that MSFT is hated by investors. If a different name was tied to their recent earnings, then the stock would have soared.
So now that 4Q has come and gone, I'm wandering what catalyst could drive this stock higher? Kinect will boost revenues, along with the new Windows, but we found that has no influence on the market. From what I read, the Windows phone doesn't get the greatest reviews, and although I saw some information on a tablet, I haven't yet seen one in the stores.
Basically, the only thing that will keep me in this stock much longer is if they announce a juicy dividend boost.
I agree this is a great time to load up!
Expect 20-30% gain over coing 6-12 months!
p/e 10, almost $50 billions of cash and the most profitable business in the world. The hype around tablets and smartphones have depressed the stock to p/e 9, and yet the company still mamaged to grow at 10% over the last a few years, depsite the recession and apple.
So many on the street are just plain stupid and are even selling here.
