The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series in which senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker discusses topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Eric looks at Microsoft's presentation at Goldman Sachs' technology conference. The most discussed area of the presentation was CFO Peter Klein's comments on Microsoft and dividends. While dividend talk among tech giants is no longer restricted to just Microsoft -- Apple's Tim Cook also took questions on the subject -- it's of such preeminence to Microsoft that the first question out of the gate was on Microsoft and its dividend policy. On that front, investors shouldn't be disappointed: Klein indicated Microsoft was focusing more on dividends and would continue aggressively raising its payouts in the future. Looking past dividends, Klein also outlined a converged strategy where Microsoft's different product lines complement each other much more robustly, but Eric was disappointed with Klein's dodging questions about how the company plans to deal with piracy. To see Eric's full analysis of Microsoft at Goldman -- in a tenth the time as the actual presentation -- watch the video below.
