What are Wall Street analysts saying about Microsoft stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Microsoft stock:
  • 1. Fundamental Research analysts commented, "Fundamental Research Corp has issued a report entitled “Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) Q1 Revenue Inline, but EPS Beat Our Expectations” and dated October 28, 2020. The full report is now at www.researchfrc.com.

    MSFT is an FRC Top Pick
    " (10/28/2020)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Microsoft's fiscal third-quarter results benefited from momentum in Azure, impressive Teams user growth led by coronavirus-induced work-from-home wave and uptick in Surface devices. Moreover, the company is benefiting from growing user base of its different applications like Office 365 commercial, and Dynamics. Azure’s expanding customer base remains a key catalyst. Furthermore, it is well poised to expand the total addressable market through acquisitions of GitHub and PlayFab. Notably, shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, weak job market and lower spend on advertising due to the coronavirus outbreak are likely to weigh on LinkedIn and Search revenues. Further, delays in consulting business contract renewals and supply chain constraints in China are anticipated to limit growth." (5/20/2020)
