Speaking of dividends, many on the Street are chattering about a possible hike. Gillis said that if history is a guide, we may hear about a small dividend boost of about two to three cents from Microsoft executives at its analyst meeting, which is set to follow the developers conference after the market closes.
“They give you a nice yield of about 2.8 percent,” he sad. “Plus they are fixing its holes in tables and on the smart phone side,” he said. “Microsoft is a buy here.”
Zach Karabell, however, does not like Microsoft. In a market like this, he thinks you should be in stocks are turbo-charged. Microsoft won’t burn you, he said, but there are about a hundred other possibilities in tech to put your money if you’re looking for the upside.
