With pivotal product releases and other announcements coming in the year ahead, 2017 is likely to be great for Microsoft and its investors.
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) has long been a favorite for many, and for good reason. The company was one of the pioneers of the entire tech industry and the stock definitely shows their success. Below, we’ll talk about some of the company’s plans for the next year and why investors should strongly consider buying this stock.
Microsoft Is An Incredibly Safe Bet
First and foremost, Microsoft has been publicly traded for quite a while now. This is a great thing. Because the company’s been on the market for so long, we can look back to historical trends for an idea of how the stock will move ahead. Well, throughout the company’s history in the market, we’ve seen incredible growth. In fact, for the most part, Microsoft has a track record of year over year gains. In fact, the only years that the stock hasn’t seen gains were years like 2008 when the global financial crisis took place.
At the end of the day, Microsoft is a company that is know for innovation and creating quality products. As a result, the company is consistently coming out with new offers and consumers lap it up. At the end of the day, this all puts money in the investors’ pockets.
2017 Will Be A Big Year For Microsoft Based On Its Plans
The truth is that 2017 isn’t just going to be a great year for Microsoft because it’s a great company and likely to follow trends. At the end of the day, the company is continuing to innovate, release new products, and turn a profit! In the year 2017, here’s what we have to look forward to from Microsoft…
- Augmented And Virtual Reality – At the moment, the big thing in technology is augmented and virtual reality. By putting these headsets on, the consumer feels as though they’ve been taken to a new world. Ultimately, augmented and virtual reality are expected to be the primary focus in the gaming industry, and Microsoft will likely do a great job in this space. After all, just take a look at the company’s Xbox. They have cornered the gaming industry with the product, and through virtual and augmented reality, they’re likely to do it again.
- Windows 10 – When Microsoft came out with Windows 10 for free, many were shocked. However, Windows 10 is a Trojan Horse. While the operating system is free, to take advantage of apps, you’ll have to buy them, and Microsoft definitely makes a good chunk of money there. In the year 2017, the company is expected to see an increase in Windows 10 sales. Ultimately, nothing makes investors happier than a growing company. So, this will likely help to push the stock upward as well.
- Mobile Phones – Finally, Microsoft is putting even more effort into Windows phones. With new software and better security, the company’s plans there are likely to pay off handsomely in the year 2017.
The Bottom Line Here
The bottom line here is simple. Microsoft has been around for quite a while. Since they first entered the market, the company proved that it has the ability to grow, leading on a year over year growth trend that few stocks can match. With pivotal product releases and other announcements coming in the year ahead, 2017 is likely to be great for Microsoft and its investors!
