Yacktman Focused Fund Comments on Microsoft - Feb 06, 2017

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s shares were solid contributors to fourth-quarter results as the company continues its remarkable transformation under CEO Satya Nadella. Microsoft could be a significant beneficiary of the new administration’s proposed tax repatriation plan.

First Eagle Investments Comments on Microsoft Corp - Oct 24, 2016

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) did well in the quarter, based on continued momentum for its cloud-distributed software business and its Office products, as well as promising signs for its customer relationship management business. Microsoft’s management has main­tained control over operating expenses while at the same time making sizable investments in many areas, such as cloud software, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Yacktman Funds Comments on Microsoft - Aug 05, 2016

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s shares were weaker during the quarter due to a modest earnings disappointment. We think CEO Satya Nadella is doing an excellent job of repositioning the company for solid long-term growth and we believe the stock is attractively priced.

First Eagle Investments Comments on Microsoft - Jul 25, 2016

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) also declined at the end of the quarter in reaction to the company’s acquisition of LinkedIn. The price Microsoft paid may have looked expensive on an enterprise value/EBITDA basis, but we think LinkedIn’s EBITDA margins could potentially move up meaningfully over time.

Meridian Funds Comments on Microsoft Corp - Mar 07, 2016

Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) is a global leader in software for PC’s and enterprise computing. The company had struggled for a number of years to find growth outside of its traditional markets, missing out on large opportunities in the social and mobile markets. Last year, shares were hit hard due to weak end markets related to PC’s as well as foreign exchange headwinds. Based on our research, we felt new management was reinvigorating innovation and the company was well positioned to offer compelling cloud-based computing services. In 2015, we began to see the signs of progress in this transformation, with shares propelled by an 80% increase in cloud computing revenue during the September quarter. We continue to hold our shares as the cloud transformation is in its early innings and we think the company has the potential to generate $4 of free cash flow per share within the next 2-3 years.

Yacktman Fund Comments on Microsoft - Feb 05, 2016

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s shares were strong as investors continued to gain enthusiasm for the company’s cloud-based business prospects, which should return the company to steady growth. Microsoft’s stock is on the more positive side of investor enthusiasm recently after being out of favor for years while its business momentum stalled. We were attracted to the shares because we felt the valuation was too pessimistic and the company had many new business opportunities that we were, in essence, getting for free.

John Rogers Comments on Microsoft Corp - Jan 22, 2016

Computing giant Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) gained +25.95% after reporting continued growth and operating momentum in cloud-based businesses such as Azure cloud and Office 365. The company also benefitted as it guided to lower-than-expected expenses for the full year. We continue to hold the shares.

GAMCO Investors Comments on Microsoft Corp - Oct 19, 2015

Microsoft Corp. (4.4%) (NASDAQ:MSFT)(MSFT – $44.26 – NASDAQ), the world’s largest software company, develops, manufacturers, and licenses a range of software products for a variety of computing devices from PC’s to servers to its Xbox game console. While the company’s core desktop operating system and applications software franchise (Windows/MS Office) is maturing, Microsoft is gaining share in the enterprise market and, with its Internet and Xbox efforts, in the consumer markets also. The company’s latest operating system, Windows 10, was released in July, 2015.

Donald Yacktman Comments on Microsoft - Aug 06, 2015

During the second quarter, top contributors included Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Stryker (NYSE:SYK) and Anthem (NYSE:ANTM).

Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) shares rebounded in the second quarter after declining in the first. The price movement demonstrates the short-term orientation that has overtaken many stocks recently, as we did not think either quarter produced much to be either panicked or excited about. We continue to like the long-term prospects for significant cash flow generation the company has, and believe the new management team is executing well.
