yes i understand but that cost doesnt come near salaries etc.

I don't think you understand.

The "Cloud" is a commodity.
There are many companies operating in this space.
They buy hard drives and rent it out to other companies.
They compete on price, so it's not like Microsoft can say "wow we have a cloud that costs us $1b to maintain, let's charge $10b!".

Theres no easy money in cloud technologies.
Microsoft is paying boatloads of engineers, boatloads of money.

Basically, it's not as simple as you make it sound.
You asked for criticism, here you have it.

Live forever or die trying.

I actually appreciate criticism. That's the only way one can think critically.
But I don't think it's as bad as you make it sound either.

I actually believe that Microsoft will do well with their cloud services.
What I was criticizing was the oversimplified opinion you originally posted.
Cloud will be very big but I don't think it will be an easy battle for any of the winners.

so what do you guys think about oil stocks? a bit high risk but i personally invested in a few. i know that there might be a drop but long term oil will probably go back up. Even if not to its former price but still can make a good return

I think very long term.  And probably not to its former levels.
Fracking is increasing supply.  The next administration may allow fracking on federal land, which would increase supply more.
But demand will increase. If the price of oil is too low, it doesn't pay for small companies to frack, so some wells will remain unpumped.

A guy just told me to invest in ORIG.

Is that what you're talking about? Do people agree with what my friend advised me?

He bought like 30k shares in HQCL when it was like 12 and sold 10k last week when it was 27......

He is still holding 20k shares, he says it will still go back up...

With oil so cheap who needs risky offshore drilling anyway?

The question is whether your friend made his $$$$ in the market, or yarshened it and is just having fun?


If he made it in the market he probably knows something. Otherwise wtvr.
