MSFT flirting with $30

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano at 11:14 AM

Shares of Microsoft have gained today on an upgrade from Credit Suise analyst Jason Maynard. He bumped his rating up to "outperform" from "buy" and elevated his price target to $35 a share from $29.

As of mid-afternoon, Microsoft was at $29.90 up 50 cents or 1.7 percent on the day. The last time Microsoft closed above $30 was April 1, 2002.

Maynard likes the company's growing strength in digital entertainment and sees MSFT as having a good risk-reward profile relative to other large tech companies.

We had quite a bit of Microsoft coverage over the past two days. Here's a look at how the company has changed since it released Windows XP five years ago. This story examines why it took so long to build Vista. Kim Peterson explains how software vendors get their programs on the desktop. And, Brier Dudley runs through the good and the bad in Vista.
