Dividends4Life: Now Is The Right Time To Invest In Microsoft

Now Is The Right Time To Invest In Microsoft

Posted by D4L | Monday, August 12, 2013 | | 0 comments »

On paper, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is an investment that any "right-minded" investor should avoid. Not only did its stock fall 11% in the wake of its most recent earnings report, the largest drop since the infamous financial crisis, but the company finally seems to be accepting the fact that the PC is on a sharp decline. Does this mean you should blindly follow the bears? Not at all; the reality is that right now is the best time to invest in Microsoft. If anything, history has shown us that it is the "not-so-right-minded" investors who make the most money.

Dividend Channel affirms that Microsoft is the top dividend stock of the Nasdaq 100, citing attractive valuation metrics. Its annual dividend yield of 2.9% is significantly higher than the average dividend paying stock in the Nasdaq 100 which yields 2.1%. Microsoft has also been able to increase its dividend progressively since 2005. If you want to make your money on the rally, constantly gambling on when to pull out, then Google and Apple remain top picks. Microsoft, on the other hand, is less volatile, undervalued, and a good income investment. The best time to invest in Microsoft is now. Don’t wait until the market at large understands its great potential and drives the price through the roof.
