    • american nomad: I am...like to see what develops with the leadership but that can go both ways...so, new highs might warrant the move out...

    • Babs61: My main concern is, MSFT has no serious competition. Apple is still a hardware specific OS. Thx for the tip though

    • Noodlez: why don't you just buy an options straddle and swingtrade?

    • Babs61: Long an ATM straddle for directional play is not my style. Thats gd if I want to be long volatility. Long puts? maybe

    • Noodlez: yeah, MSFT has 2 huge assets. Windows+Office and X-Box. it will still sell for a couple years, i guess. plus, the new xbox will come soon.
