On today's edition of MarketFoolery, the daily podcast from The Motley Fool, we discuss the following topics:

  • After ignoring the stock for the past decade, why is one of our analysts now a big fan of Microsoft's (Nasdaq: MSFT) stock? Does Panera Bread (Nasdaq: PNRA) have that strong a business, or is one of our analysts just smitten with bagels, sandwiches, and cookies? Tune in to hear why these two companies have our panel saying "yes" to the stock.
  • Was it Bank of America's (NYSE: BAC)  role in the 2008 crash that garnered the stock a spot on our "no" list? With a strong range of electronics, what makes Sony's (NYSE: SNE) stock so unattractive?

Listen now to hear all that, plus two more stocks our analysts are on the fence about.
