Microsoft is a buy at these levels



October 04, 2010 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: MSFT

I don't have much time right now at the moment, but MSFT looks rather attractive at these levels.

1) Tons of cash

2) 2% dividend

3) Still the world's biggest computer company.

4) Selling for ~10x 2011 earnings.

5) Basically at a 52 week low and there is rock solid support going back 10 yrs. at ~22 which is roughly 8% lower. Not much room to fall.


This certainly won't make you a killing, but it should preform well over the next few years in what is likely a sideways market.

Currently I don't have a position.

With that being said, I will likely open one up here on Caps and possibly in RL within the next few weeks.

I doubt that Option1307 wields enough clout that his opinion moves the price of MSFT.

I don't see that MSFT has anywhere to grow.  They keep bringing out iterations of progressively less relevant legacyware.  That has been their strategy since Bill Gates left the company, taking all the steak with him, and leaving a progressively shrinking Ballmer sizzling away over the flames.
