Is Microsoft a good tech investment? In this video, Andrew Tonner gives a few reasons he'd steer clear:

  • The PC market is shrinking, and Microsoft hasn't adapted well to mobile technology.
  • Windows 8 is a dud.
  • The company had to write off $6 billion for an acquisition that went bad, the latest in a string of failed acquisitions.

Although Microsoft pays a nice dividend for a tech company, Andrew argues that it hasn't returned much else to investors for the past 10 years, and it doesn't appear poised to adapt to a changing future.
