Microsoft Corporation is a software giant. It was not long ago that they were dominating the personal computer software industry. Now, their market scope has spread to all sorts of software products. If you are thinking about investing in Microsoft Corporation stocks, you should think again.
Microsoft Corporation is a technology company. Their other product lines include games, Office Suite, and the Xbox. The stock market has performed poorly lately due to the fact that people are concerned about the state of the economy. Microsoft’s stock has dropped approximately forty percent since July.
Many people have speculated that the low MSFT stock price is related to the fact that the gaming consoles that they release have not performed well. This rumor is just not true. Microsoft’s stock price has not dropped since the release of the Xbox One. If there was any problem with the games, it would have shown up in the market. It did not.
There is one company that you can purchase Microsoft stock in and that company is called Microsoft Capital. Microsoft Capital is an organization that buys, sells, and trades Microsoft shares. Microsoft shares are traded on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB). Microsoft Corporation does not own this particular stock. Microsoft is not involved in the trades, therefore Microsoft shares are considered “per share” trades, just like any other stock traded on the OTC.
Microsoft Corporation does, however, have an investor relations department. You should not invest directly in Microsoft Corporation through this investor relations department. Instead, you should invest indirectly through this department. What this means is that you can invest in Microsoft through them by purchasing other Microsoft stock through a broker. You can then sell your Microsoft stock at a profit when the time is right. Microsoft Corporation does not make any guarantees as to when the time is right.
What happens if you are unable to sell your shares after a period of time? The answer to that question depends on whether or not Microsoft Corporation allows you to reinvest your earnings into the corporation. If you purchase Microsoft Corporation stock that is restricted in any way, you will not be able to reinvest your earnings. If you do not receive an opportunity to reinvest your earnings, you are required by law to liquidate your Microsoft stock. You are then required to pay capital gains taxes on any amount of money that you earn from the sale of restricted stock.
