Optimistic
Although most here probably do not remember a pre-Facebook internet world, my money is on Microsoft to re-emerge as a dominant player. Microsoft doesn't need to dominate like they did with the desktop, they need only stay relevant. With a new leader experienced in cloud services, a dominant presence in the gamer world, the beginnings of a in car auto presence, and finally a willingness to integrate with apple products, I see nothing but positive for Microsoft in the next 5 years. Right company, right direction and right products indicates steady growth and profit.
