  • Microsoft: Fairly Valued And Heading Into A Year Of Big Changes [View article]
    As a long term holder of MSFT, I share and appreciate your optimistic analysis of this amazing company.
    You will be significantly rewarded by taking a patient approach and reaping the benefits over the years. Give considerable emphasis to the intelligence and integrity of the major stockholders and board of directors.

  • Microsoft: Mr. Softie No More [View article]
    I'm evidently unsophisticated in mathematics also. I bought MSFT in 1986.

  • Microsoft: Mr. Softie No More [View article]
    As an unsophisticated investor, I based my decision to hold MSFT for over 30 years on my belief in the integrity of the corporate leadership. Most pundits advised against this strategy, but I have always been assured by the goal oriented wisdom of Gates, Allen, Balmer, the board of directors, and now Nadella.

    I have been rewarded significantly for this long term investing strategy of choosing a business led by honorable and intelligent people.

    I do enjoy reading the daily advice and speculating from the writers on Seeking Alpha.

  • An Important Lesson Microsoft Can Teach You About Growth [View article]
    There is also something to be said for buying a quality stock and holding it for a long period despite the uncertain expectations and punditry characterized by the market. For instance, 100 shares of MSFT bought in 1986 for $ 3,000 and held until today would:

    *** Be worth $ 1,200,000

    *** Have paid $ 250,000 in total dividends without reinvesting.

    *** Pay over $ 32,000 in dividends annually.

  • Are You Also Wrong On Microsoft? [View article]
    Not all investors are unhappy with Microsoft's
    long term performance.
    For example, A 100 share ($3000) purchase of MSFT stock in 1986 and sold today would:

    1) Be worth $1,000,000.
    2) Have paid over $210,000 in dividends.
    3) Returned an average of $45,000 per year for 27 years
    for the original $3000 investment.
    4) Pay over $30,000 per year today in dividends.
    5) Be a very risk free investment to hold .

  • Microsoft Now A Better Bet Than Apple? [View article]
    Greg,
    Look at a comparison chart of both Apple and Microsoft beginning in 1986. In the long run Microsoft is much better.Of course, if you are only interested in short term investing, you could make a case for preferering Apple. Most successful investors use long term strategies.

  • Microsoft Now A Better Bet Than Apple? [View article]
    I recommend that you "keep quiet". Money invested in Apple has gone up 5 fold over the last few years. Money invested in Microsoft in 1986 has gone up 300 fold. In the long haul, Microsoft is the superior investment

    $3000 invested in Microsoft in 1986 is worth over $900,000 today plus it also pays a $2,000 per month dividend.

  • Microsoft: A Most Secure Source Of Income [View article]
    An investor who bought 100 shares of Microsoft in 1986 and held it until now would receive $2000 per month in dividends and still have shares worth $800,000.
