3 Signs Microsoft Is Set to Explode

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which research analyst Lyons George and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics around the investing world.

Microsoft has been in the news a lot recently, and rightly so -- the company's newly introduced Surface tablet represents a serious threat in a rapidly expanding market. But that isn't all Mr. Softy is up to. A recently leaked (and quickly removed) document suggests that a powerful revamp to the Xbox, which happens to be the world's No. 1 selling console, is coming soon. Toss in a slew of innovative upgrades on the search engine front, and it's clear that Microsoft is as aggressive and ambitious as ever. Watch as Lyons and Isaac discuss why Silicon Valley's original darling might still be a terrific buy.

If you're one of the thousands of investors riding Apple to spectacular gains, you're doing yourself a disservice by not looking across the whole variety of companies benefiting from the same trends that make Apple the most valuable company in the world. The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile called "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market. 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, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.

    If by explode you mean blow up, I'd be more inclined to agree with you. The "experts" have always thought highly of Microsoft's products but the average consumer not as much.
