Microsoft has been making the rounds with financial analysts this week, explaining its business vision. The company is also preparing to release a "consumer preview" beta of Windows 8, its next-generation client operating system, at the end of this month. Otherwise, there seems to be no obvious explanation for the uptick. Stock prices fluctuate all of the time.
