MAO Chart September 252023

Last seen marginally lower, Microsoft stock has slowly pulled back from its peak following a bull note from UBS. What's more, it looks like the blue-chip tech giant is going to face competition in the artificial intelligence (AI) zone now that Amazon.com (AMZN) is dipping its toes into the technology. On the charts, MSFT's 140-day moving average is keeping the shares afloat, with additional support from the $315 level.

Now looks like a good time to weigh in on the security's next move with options. The stock is seeing attractively priced premiums at the moment, per its Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 24%, which sits in the relatively low 25th percentile of its annual range.



How to collect 1 dividend check every day for LIFE

Did you know you could collect 1 dividend check every day the market is open? You could also do it starting with just $605! For me, I'm collecting 70 dividend checks every quarter…which averages around 1.1 dividend checks every business day. There's no trading behind this... no penny stocks or high-risk investments. All you do is buy and hold and you're set. There's no set up required either. If you start buying the dividend stocks I show you today... you could collect 1 dividend per day starting as early as this week. Click here for all the details.
