Windows 7: Would investing in Microsoft be a wise idea?

Would investing in Microsoft be a wise idea?

I was wondering with the recession, wouldn't it be a great time to by stock. And, with the release of Seven, would Microsoft's stock go up tremendously at the time of release?

That would be an interesting thing to see. With Vista unfortunately many were distanced falling back to XP or looking at Linux. The improvements seen so far in 7 make that a real eye opener for most right off the top!

Take a few running old clunkers with only 512mb installed and having a favorable view already on 7. The dread of the "Vista bloat" is no longer seen with 7's refinements making that a rather "appetising OS once finally out.

Now for stocks of any type that's a different story from a guaranteed winner which will likely be the case with 7. The market is always an unsure place while 7 certainly looks like a possible success story there too.

Better idea to invest in food/supermarket companies.

Sales go up at times like this in those sectors.

don't invest in ANYTHING mate.......get your cash out of the bank & exchange it for gold & silver ingots, these will hold their value (''base metals'' the only things that will), this situation is gonna get worse..

we are no where near clear of this depression, stocks may appear to rise for a while, but they will drop even lower soon after

Although I agree that base metals hold their value... is not spending money, kind of a self fulfilling prophecy? People too scared to spend will drop the value of everything, stocks included.

I disagree that nothing is safe, and to horde money without risk, yes the economic situation is not looking sunny, but look at alberta, trades basically live there, and their economy was one of the smartest in canada's.

Just be cautious like you always have been with money. I fiqure running from a problem is the fastest way to bring it to your front door.

A few reasons I would invest in MS would be for the fact that now more then ever, value netbooks and PC's will scour the market and people will no longer be most interested in bleeding edge PC's. By the same fact more folks can afford the cheaper netbooks, and with the Microsofts OS such as vista, XP etc $$$$ licences. Layoffs are happening in part some companies are using this situation to cut unwanted staff, so I don't count that as a reflection of poor bottomline health, But thats my point of view.

The economic picture is global not just localized. People across the globe are feeling the effects.

For domestic alone both GM and Ford auto manufacturers are now offering to... waaa... what?! ! actually 'pick up the payments"! if you take a loan out on any new vehicle and you get layed off from work! Chrysler has been pointed at merging with Fiat due to a lack of seeing enough small compact models in their new car lineup.

The stock market as a rule has always been a risk even in the brightest of sunny days! You can "lose your shirt" fast is one of the popular expressions. But how much and how you invest can be the "maky/breaky" of your own finances there.

What's that shrewd investors are those that "know when to hold them and when to fold them" as well! Sounds like an old Kenny Rogers theme there!

I think Microsoft had the idea of an app store before anyone.
If you ran Windows Xp and never looked at the Start Menu, you would see a link called Windows Catalog. That would had taken you to the Microsoft Store, where you'd be able to browse some random Microsoft software and some hardware. Obviously, it was totally under-developed to be what we know now as...
