Summary

  • Investors should increase their long-term position on Microsoft.
  • Microsoft outplayed IBM, Amazon, and Google. Microsoft recently won the hotly contested 10-year $10 billion U.S. Joint Enterprise Defense Initiative or JEDI cloud-computing contract.
  • Going forward, this contract win can add $1 billion/year in new revenue to Microsoft’s fastest-growing segment, Intelligent Cloud.
  • The halo effect of the JEDI cloud computing contract victory will attract more enterprise/government customers away from Amazon Web Services.
  • The U.S. government’s JEDI contract obviously needed the best security and reliability. Microsoft Azure’s reputation therefore was greatly enhanced from this contract win.

Microsoft Stock Forecast

Summary:

  • I Know First has pessimistic market trend forecasts for Microsoft’s stock. Investors should do profit-taking while this stock still trades above $90.
  • Microsoft’s recent management team shake-up is not inspiring investors to rally behind the stock.
  • I can explain this algorithmic bearishness to Microsoft’s inability to dislodge Amazon Web Services’ leadership in cloud computing infrastructure services.
  • Based on most-recent quarter signals, hedge fund managers have a very negative sentiment over Microsoft. No real revenue/profit numbers for Azure is discouraging.
  • Azure is unlikely to gain a foothold in China’s $103 billion cloud computing industry. Alibaba Cloud will dominate China and threaten current global leaders.
