IK-> The technicals for MSFT ($72.33 up $0.57) are bullish with an upward trend. The stock has support about $69.50. Look at the July 65/67.50 bull-put spread for a 25-cent credit. That's an 11.1% return and the stock has to fall by 6.7% to cause a problem. [InvestorsKeyhole, various news and data services]
