The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.
Recently, Microsoft unveiled a plan for beating Google and Apple. David is skeptical of Microsoft's ability to outperform those two companies, and he ranks all three in the following order in terms of five-year future performance: Apple, Google, Microsoft. Of the three, Apple is likely to remain top dog because it has built an ecosystem of devices and content, which has locked in many users for the long haul.
