Above $30, Can Microsoft Go Much Higher?

Wednesday, 1 Feb 2012 | 5:17 PM ET

Does Microsoft have more game than you think? The stock hit $30 for the first time since May 2010, trading near a one-and-a half year high.

Considering the stock was considered dead money until quite recently, should you buy into the move higher?

Trader Guy Adami says you should. "I think it has further room on the upside. Everyone may be all jazzed about Facebook right now, but slow and steady wins the race,” he says.

Pete Najarian likes the stock too, even at these loft levels. “I see it as a bond alternative. And they have Windows 8. That could be a big catalyst,y” he says.
