What are Wall Street analysts saying about Microsoft stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Microsoft stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Microsoft reported stellar second-quarter results. The company is benefiting from robust Commercial business. Moreover, Azure’s expanding customer base is a key catalyst. The company is gaining from growing user base of its different applications like Office 365, Dynamics, Outlook mobile and Teams. Further, acquisitions like PlayFab and GitHub expand Microsoft’s total addressable market (TAM) and penetration. Additionally, latest contract wins from the Department of Defense remain notable. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, declining console sales are likely to weigh on gaming revenues. Moreover, increasing expenditure on product development amid stiff competition from the likes of Google, Apple, and Sony is likely to limit margin expansion." (1/31/2020)
