Better Buy Now: Google vs. Microsoft


Tech analyst Andrew Tonner discusses the merits of Microsoft and Google, two companies that recently released earnings. Google is not as cheap as Microsoft, but its revenue growth of 30% far surpasses Microsoft's single-digit growth. Investors have yet to see Microsoft emerge with a successful new product in mobile, as Bing has been a drag, but the Surface tablet does look promising. Still, Google is already dominant in mobile along with Apple, and looks to capitalize further on this trend. Andrew thinks Google is the better buy.

While Microsoft and Google compete for No. 2, Apple remains the top dog in the emerging mobile space. Apple is the most influential company in technology and has delivered market-smashing returns for those lucky enough to invest in the company. However, with the impending release of the iPhone 5 and Apple TV on the horizon, the stakes have never been higher for the company. If you're looking for a recommendation on how to play Apple along with continuing updates and guidance on the company whenever news breaks, we've created a brand new report that details when to buy and sell Apple.
