For Microsoft investors, this next step in isolation may not immediately appear to be significant, but taken as a whole, the shifting strategy is incredibly bullish. In 3 Dividend-Paying Power Plays for Your Portfolio, I outline once again why Microsoft is a strong dividend stock with growth potential.
Microsoft is growing, but a lukewarm market attitude towards an old-school stock in a space occupied by Facebook (FB), LinkedIn (LNKD), Twitter (TWTR) and others creates real growth value for anyone willing to objectively examine the metrics. Microsoft may not be as sexy as the above social media plays, but that's exactly why it offers a superior risk to reward opportunity. Besides, making money never goes out of fashion.
As disclosed below, I have no position, but after this article is published I intend to put my money where my keyboard is and buy Microsoft for the reasons stated above.
