I just don't see Microsoft doing anything interesting except for Xbox, and I don't think that's enough to power this company forward -- especially given that Windows 8x is awful.

Microsoft has repeatedly issued platforms that have performed above board followed by a not so good product. Many believe that the Windows8.1 has taken on the negative after Windows7 great reveal. The next platform, if all goes as it has, will fall into the "I want this" zone.

August 17, 2013, we set a target price for Microsoft at $41. Currently, the price is $39.87 per share, and has paid two dividends at $0.28/share. That is a healthy 29% return since we made our original recommendation.

Therefore, we now ask, “What now?”

Do nothing
Warren Buffett is possibly the most famous “buy and hold” investor ever. His typical timeframe for holding a stock is “forever”. If the underlying qualities of the stock are what initiated the purchase, then there should be no reason for one to sell the stock. Just let it keep growing.

The metrics for Microsoft are still strong:

Z Ratio (5.09) shows the company is on sound financial footing. Currently, its debt rating is AAA.
Gross margins are 71% and net margins are 27%
Revenue grows at 9.23% per year and earnings are better at 14.7%
Return on equity is 28%
It generates free cash flow at $2.90 per share
We see a new fair price for MSFT at $56

If Microsoft announces Office 365 for iPad, Microsoft's share price will react positively as the available market opportunity is incredible.

I believe the new CEO will get a bump up as people anticipate a happy change in the companies fortunes. I think he will get a good 6-8 month honeymoon, as long as they don't fumble to coming out party, and we will be able to make a better estimation of where the company is going over then. For the short term I'm bullish however.

Seems M$FT is overvalued at 37-40 I will change my pick when I see it around 30-32. There are still a lot of xbox fans that have not upgraded from the 360 for various reasons. I am one that hasn't and I don't think i will either. I dont like that the kinect is always watching and that it is not backwards compatible. It will be a while before the new games out pace the 360 enough to really be better anyway.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.

The long deferred enterprise IT refresh cycle can't be put off much longer. And now MSFT has announced the end of support for XP, which will definitely force the hand of many hold-outs. Couple this with enhanced cloud products and marketing efforts assured by the new CEO. Revenues and earnings are destined to grow. Sales and marketing cost for the refresh are negligible. Windows 9 and Office will fly out the door. And might they be working on something more? Big data and analytics software are prime candidates. But the Nokia purchase looks iffy to me.

They are coming out with new devices soon. They have bought other companies that will help improve their new products that are coming out in the upcoming months.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft's new CEO, will lead the company (and stock price) to new heights. "The opportunity ahead for Microsoft is vast, but to seize it, we must focus clearly, move faster and continue to transform. A big part of my job is to accelerate our ability to bring innovative products to our customers more quickly," Nadella said.

Seeing as how Microsoft has some major gaming titles coming up in 2014, such as Halo 5 and Titanfall, I believe that Microsoft will outperform the market
p.s. Xbox for life

With the recent problems with their tablets, windows 8.1, and management, I don't believe Microsoft can outperform the current market.
