Microsoft headquartersIf you are very risk averse, but would like to benefit from the great appreciation and movement of tech stocks, you are on a tight spot. Usually, when it comes to tech stocks, you have to take a lot of risks. That is the main reason why these tech stocks go crazy, either going up or going down, because they carry a lot of risks. This is especially true when it comes to Biotechnology, internet stocks, and software stocks.

However, if you are a conservative investor and would like to invest in a company that pays in a solid dividend that grows year after year, you might want to pay attention to Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). Microsoft is a market leader in the operating system space. While there is a good argument to be made that the operating system space will probably disappear in the near to midterm future, Microsoft has a massive organizational and sales infrastructure that can enable it to morph in to a technologically important company.

So far, it has been making great progress in moving into the Cloud Computing space. Cloud Computing is the future and Microsoft knows this. Microsoft knows this. It has the brand power as well as the financial resources to make that transition.

If you are looking to invest in a tech stock that has a high chance of not going down in value, you might want to try Microsoft. At worst, your stock will just move sideways. In other words, it will not lose value. At best, however, if you look at the up side, the best scenario is that Microsoft successfully makes the transition and becomes worth much more than it is now. That should be your analysis framework when looking at the stock.
