Read More : Microsoft at 52-week High: What's the Fuss?
Apparently, someone forgot to tell the market that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ/MSFT) was a dead investment and not worth buying.
Following a lackluster launch of its "Surface" tablet and "Windows 8" operating system, Microsoft quietly moved to a new 52-week high of $32.84 last Thursday.
In its fiscal third quarter, Microsoft reported revenues of $20.49 billion, now on target for fiscal 2013 revenues of $79.16 billion, based on the Thomson Financial estimates.
My stock analysis indicates that the current uptick in the stock price is being triggered by optimism toward the company's focus on touch-screen computing and mobile devices, along with greater demand for Microsoft's "Xbox" gaming platform.
