Nice return.

I'm afraid to invest in technology companies myself. Seems like fads come and go, companies can be kings one day and paupers the next, or vise versa.

Only invest in what you know.  I know Microsoft.

indeed. I just bought AMD last week.

And made some nice money with sony this year

Me too but I think I sold at the right time.  Their stock frightens me at the moment.



I'm not really here!


Good news for Microsoft, but I wonder where does this money come from? Surface tablets flopped, Windows phones doing ok but not gigantic amounts, Windows 8 and Office were not received well by consumers. Did I miss any product? Oh yes, Xbox - which had to hide behind entertainment section to show profit/loss account.

Windows 8 and Office is selling on par with 7, it's a money machine.

Xbox makes profits, has done for the last 6 years.

Surface is a drop in the ocean.

Windows phones sell like 8m a Q now?

Office wasnt received well by co simers?  when?

Office is a cash cow.

Windows is a cash cow.

Enterprise is an even bigger cash cow.  MS is MASSIVE in the enterprise sector and now including cloud and associated repeat income business will only get bigger and bigger.

Stop reading weak and ill thought out knee jerk reactions on sites like this and do some research, MS is more profitable now than it has ever been in its history.

They also seem to be targeting Blackberry's stranghold on enterprise.  If that plays out, then the Windows Phone market will not only grow substantially but it will create a revenue stream that will be lucrative for years and years to come.  

For me the scariest thing is the next CEO.  If s/he is determined to make his/her mark on history instead of helping to cultivate the positive intiatives already in place, then this could be a stock not worth keeping long term.  Of course all of this is my opinion ...

Blackberry is done.  Not even worth mentioning.

The next CEO is unliklet to be Etop... so no worries.

What i like most about MS is something which nearly Nobody wants to hear. MS is been voted the best Company to work for in Europe. Even The Most tolerant Company for People from Different Races and sexual Orientation. They seem to care More for their Employees as many Other Companies do, which is to be honest not hard in Europe. Its far more easier to Call them M$ than say something positive about Big Bad MS. Beside that i would like to See Sony Turn Things in the right Direction as Well like they already do with their playstation Brand.



Itll take some time to clean up Don Mattricks mess, but they are getting there :)



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

DOW is up about the same amount since January so this isn't at all surprising. It's a good time for investors in pretty much everything...
