On August 20, 2015 I purchased 6 shares of Microsoft (MSFT) for $45.95 a share. I just missed the ex date on this dividend, but will start receiving them in time for a likely raise in December.
Unfortunately I bought it a day to early before the crash that would have given it to me cheaper. Oh well I am glad to be a shareholder in the company. I don't see anyone not using Word or Excel on school projects and the company is big enough and has enough cash on the balance sheet to reinvent themselves again. A new CEO promises to slow the PC declines and build their cloud business.
