The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and options advisor Jeff Fischer discuss their favorite stocks.

In today's edition, Jeff and Eric look at how to creatively profit on a company many investors feel is going nowhere. Microsoft may seem stale, but the good news is they don't have very much downside. Jeff outlines a unique way to use options to capture all of the potential upside on this company, mitigate risk, and still realize a large return. If the strategy Jeff discusses seem interesting to you, be sure to check out the Options Whiz free learning material we're publishing for Options month here at The Motley Fool.

Questioning an investing thesis -- even one of our own -- helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
