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?
