Microsoft (MSFT) Big Pic

Are Microsoft shares worth gambling on in 2013?

 

Since January of 2011 Microsoft Corp (MSFT) shares have lost 1% while the Dow Jones Ind. has increased 13%.  It gets worse when you consider Microsoft's rivals Apple (AAPL) and Google (GOOG) have rallied 68% and 15% respectively in the same time frame.  Could Microsoft finally make a comeback in 2013, enough to make it worth as an investment for shareholders?

Cue the $100 Roll

$100 Bill - U.S. Currency

This corporate mammoth out of St. Paul, Minnesota could finally break the $100 share price.

3M Co. (MMM) has been an incredible investment this year, increasing 30% while paying out a 2.5% annual dividend yield.  The Post-It Note King could finally surpass the $100 share price before the end of the year.
