Summary:

  • We all know why Microsoft was forced to build a web browser based on Google’s Chromium code.
  • Microsoft desperately needs more people to use its Edge browser.
  • Using its rival’s very popular browser universal framework Chromium to build a new version of Edge is smart.

Microsoft Stock: Strong-Arm Tactic Will Compel Windows 7 Holdouts To Upgrade

Microsoft Stock:

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Windows 7 was released almost 10 years ago. Microsoft stock has a headwind from the fact that Windows 7 still touts more than 36% market share.
  • Microsoft failed to meet its target of 1 billion devices on Windows 10 partly because many business and home users refused to upgrade from Windows 7.
  • Windows 7 support will end on January 24, 2020. Only volume licensed Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Enterprise versions will get paid extended support.
  • The expensive fees that Microsoft will charge Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Enterprise volume license owners will force them to upgrade to Windows 10.
  • I commend this strong-arm tactic of Microsoft. Microsoft is better off when most Windows 7 users are compelled to upgrade to Windows 10.

Summary:

  • The software-centric business of Microsoft makes it a safer long-term investment than Apple.
  • Unlike Apple, Microsoft has zero hardware exposure to China’s cold war with Trump. The smartphone business has reached peak status and is already on the decline.

  • Like Apple and its iTunes iOS platform, Microsoft is also a giant beneficiary of the growing video games industry.
  • I Know First has a very bullish 12-month market trend forecast for MSFT.

Microsoft Stock Forecast: Why On-Premise Office 2019 Is Still Important For Microsoft

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • I will upgrade my Office 2016 to the new 2019 version once Microsoft launches the home version. Office 2019 is currently only available for business users.
  • There are hundreds of millions like me who prefer the offline version of Microsoft’s productivity suite.
  • Microsoft will keep on updating its on premise Office suite because Office 365 is not going to reach 300 million active users anytime soon.
  • As of October 2018, there are only more than 135 million active commercial users of Office 365. This is in spite of its platform-agnostic design.
  • Businesses and ordinary Office users who do not rely too much on online collaboration will find it smarter to just a perpetual license for Office 2019.
