What are Wall Street analysts saying about Microsoft stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Microsoft stock:
  • 1. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We came away from meetings with Microsoft Gaming executives yesterday more encouraged by the strategy around subscriptions, content, partnerships, and Azure as a gaming optimized cloud back-end that suggests this $10B+ segment could sustain healthy growth and improving margins over the next three to five years. While Gaming is a small component of overall revenue at 9.4% of FY18 sales, we see innovations around Game Pass, xCloud, and Project Scarlett as evidence that Microsoft views this as a strategic growth opportunity addressing 2B+ gaming consumers in a $100B+ industry." (6/11/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Microsoft is benefiting from growing user base of its different applications like Office 365 commercial, Dynamics, Outlook mobile and Teams. Moreover, Azure’s expanding customer base is a key catalyst. Microsoft’s gaming segment is performing well, primarily driven by a combination of Xbox Live, Game Pass subscriptions and Mixer, which are driving user engagement. Further, acquisitions like PlayFab and GitHub expand Microsoft’s total addressable market (TAM) and penetration. Additionally, expanding partner base is notable. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year over yearbasis. However, projections of a moderating growth rate in commercial cloud gross margin, and OEM Pro and Windows commercial businesses is a headwind." (1/28/2019)
