It's no secret that Microsoft has missed or bungled its fair share of opportunities over the last decade, and it shows. Excluding dividends, the lumbering tech giant's shares have been flat for the better part of a decade -- until recently.

Despite its many detractors, Microsoft's stock has been on a tear in 2013, having risen around 30%. And while it was fair to stay that Microsoft was simply too cheap, that's not necessarily the case anymore. In the video below, Fool contributor Andrew Tonner investigates whether there's still opportunity in Microsoft shares today.

In a new premium report on Microsoft, a Motley Fool analyst explains that while the opportunity is huge, so are the challenges.
