Playing Microsoft Ahead Of Earnings


The world's largest software company, Microsoft (MSFT), unleashes its report card after the bell tomorrow. That gives investors only one day to make their move. What’s the trade?

Tim Strazzini expects to see about $14 billion in revenue and adds he’ll be looking at the number of copies of Vista that were sold. (Vista is Microsoft’s new operating system)

Tim says early problems with Vista will likely keep the upside potential fairly low. He doesn’t like owning this stock going into earnings.
