As the company navigates the cyclical dynamics affecting their consumer business, the management anticipate their larger commercial business to grow at about 20% in constant currency this fiscal year. Microsoft is getting more customers that want to grow and innovate with its existing infrastructure
Despite the massive size of its revenues, Microsoft has proven to be a remarkable story in terms of percentage-basis top-line growth over the past few years. Even in its most recent quarter, the company managed a double-digit top-line growth (around 12%) although it did fall short of Wall Street expectations in terms of both, revenues and earnings. The Microsoft Cloud achieved a quarterly revenue milestone of $25 billion for the first time, up 28% and 33% in constant currency. The company's bran

Alphabet and Microsoft have traditionally been two of the most reliable tech blue-chips that most technology investors have in their long-term portfolios. While the core revenue generating business for both companies is slightly different with Microsoft having a heavy focus on SaaS offerings around Windows and Office and Alphabet being more focused on digital advertising, they have been traditional rivals in many aspects. Alphabet has won many a battle in the past versus Microsoft whether it was

Microsoft zoomed past the target price from our last report as the company delivered yet another stellar result driven by the strong adoption of Azure cloud offerings, excellent momentum in its Teams app and its Power Platform, the robust LinkedIn business and the gaming segment. It has been in the news after the recent rollout of the latest iteration of its Windows operating system — Windows 11. The company’s overall top-line was up 22% and the Microsoft cloud continues to be a major driver, co
Microsoft had another solid quarterly result as it inched closer to the target price from our last report. The company saw a 21% top-line growth with a staggering 36% jump in commercial cloud offerings i.e., Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), LinkedIn, Dynamics CRM, and of course, its cloud infrastructure platform Azure.

Following the news on Friday 1 December that Siemens has, subject to completion, disposed of its 11.2% holding in Sondrel at 6p per share, we see a significant buying opportunity. We believe the sale was for Siemens AG organisational convenience rather than in relation to Sondrel’s fundamentals. We have summarised the history of the relationship, our view on the rationale for the sale and touch on the latest industry outlook. We reiterate our 1-year price target of 74p which is just shy of the h
