This Tech Stock Is Making a Comeback

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which associate advisor Charly Travers and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.

Trading at just 11 times earnings, Microsoft is the Rodney Dangerfield of stocks: It gets no respect. But, 2012 is shaping up as a breakthrough year for Microsoft with the launch of Windows 8 and the increasing importance of its Xbox Live platform.

These companies are just one way to play the tech revolution, but there is a better Foolish pick, too. The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that's also absolutely dominating the exploding tech market in China. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, but you can be among the first to access this just-released report by clicking here -- it's free.

    I absolutely agree about Microsoft, which is why I added it to my portfolio 42 days ago. You touched on most of what I think are the "bright" spots for MSFT's future, except you kinda skipped over their possibilities in mobile with Nokia's phones (which is where Win8 on smartphones, tablets and Ultrabooks converges to be a (potentially) very powerful, integrated ecosystem), and you didn't mention the Kinect technology at all, which I see as playing a big role (integrated into Win8, etc) in the future of how we interact with all of our devices in what Intel calls "the compute continuum" that's coming.

    However, with respect to ARM chips, while they are "low power", they are not "high performance" when compared to x86-based chips, and the power consumption of x86 chips is dropping rapidly. It will be interesting to see which comes out on top: Windows, et al, running on ARM, or Google's Android "Ice Cream Sandwich" running on Intel Architecture CPUs. Hmmmm...

    Nice to hear someone plugging Microsoft. Yes, they're not as sexy as Apple, but then again, they never have been... LOL. But they're still here, and they will be for some time to come.

    Fool on!... :-)
