OK, sure, it's obvious, and not that big a fall.
But Microsoft is trading at $26.35, 20% off its recent high.

Sure it's boring, and everybody hates them, their products, and the horse they rode in on.
Traders hate it because the share price has been flat for about 13 years,
but the business has been growing steadily so during that time it went
from expensive to fairly priced to cheap.
They still make a boat load of money, and it's cheap at maybe 8-8.5
times cash flow which seems likely to keep on rising for some years yet.

Killer balance sheet. 3.5% dividend yield. You won't go broke on it.
