Web Extra: Burned By Microsoft

Friday, 28 May 2010 | 5:51 PM ET

It looked like a hot trade. So how is Tim Seymour playing Microsoft now that he’s been burned.

The Ambassador made the fateful call on April 8th.

At the time he said, “This is a stock that’s been unloved. I think we see a rotation into quality. I think its going higher."

Unfortunately this stock was unloved because it’s a heart breaker. Since he said to get long shares have moved sharply lower.

So, what does he have to say about Microsoft now?

The charts has leveled off and it's not a terribly expensive stock, he says. I'm in it.
