Cramer: Microsoft Is Not a Sell

Debra Borchardt:

Overly hated.

Jim Cramer:

It was overly loved yesterday, overly hated today, that's the binary nature. We were talking about that with Stephanie. We're talking out of Chicago Bridge and Iron (CBI), and it was loved and it went to $62, and then there's some contract that may or may not be lost and it goes to $55. You have to take advantage of the swings now because there's really not that much to buy unless there's a price discount. You don't go in front of a Shurland sell on this particular quarter but maybe after the quarter, you take a look at it.

Debra Borchardt:

Listen, I think if Microsoft did some price cuts, I think they could jam out this product if they came in at a really sweet spot on their price, I think that would be it.

Jim Cramer:

Right. Windows 8's out. I like the product, but they have to give it away. They have to give it away.

Debra Borchardt:

That's what I was going to say. We have a Windows 8 on the laptop at home. I find it very intuitive. I'm not a hater.

Jim Cramer:

Their tablet, I think is great because they have got to give it away. They've really shown way too much. Let's just give it away. They should say, "I'll charge 50 dollars for it," and get everybody hooked.

Debra Borchardt:

There you go. Microsoft, definitely not a sell but definitely something that a trader could love because it is in a range, and a range you can play.
