Microsoft Knocks it out of the Park

To the Microsoft naysayers and economic pessimists, I have but one thing to say: $14.5 billion. That is how much money Microsoft brought in last quarter setting yet another revenue record (wish the stock would do the same).

Windows 7 and the Windows division led the growth charge. In fact, the Windows division brought in $4.4 billion. I've got to watch this puppy more closely.

Microsoft is also benefiting from its strong consumer brands such as Xbox (I've spent more on this for my kids than I spend on computers for myself).

What is the financial future for Microsoft and why isn't current success reflected in its moribund stock price? Wise advice and wild speculation equally welcome at [email protected]

Also, what do you buy for you kids and is it better than your own technology? Complaints and explanations readily received at [email protected]
