Companies That Microsoft Should or Should Not Buy

Description:

I cannot tell you how often I hear the phrase: Microsoft (MSFT) should purchase . There is no doubt that Microsoft is one of the most cash rich companies in Corporate America and the world. The company currently has about $50 billion in cash and short term investments plus about another $11 billion in long term investments. Typically long term investments are government or investment grade corporate debt that matures in greater than one year. Offsetting all of that wealth is o nearly $12 billion in debt. Needless to say, Microsoft has a significant amount of liquid capital at its disposal. Furthermore, Microsoft's stock has a market capitalization of just under $210 billion which only adds to its ability to acquire another company. There are some companies that Microsoft should buy and some that the company should avoid.
