Shares of Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) had one of their best performances in years on news that longtime CEO Steve Ballmer would be relinquishing his grip on the software giant at some point in the next year. If you weren't aware (or couldn't have guessed), Ballmer was a divisive figure, largely because of Microsoft's scant returns during his decade-plus at the helm. To be sure, Microsoft's last 13 years have seen their fair share of embarrassments. However, as investors, we need to be forward looking. Should investors be snapping up shares of Microsoft, or are shares still dicey? In this video, Fool contributor Andrew Tonner gives his take on how investors should play Microsoft as it enters the post-Ballmer era.
