10% of holdings now -- take profit? They have owned it over 8 years. A top 5 holding for him. In his portfolio, he wants to bring the weight of stocks down to reduce risk. He suggests picking away at stocks have been unduly punished and shave down some of the MSFT holding. Don't lose the entire position, instead use it to purchase punished deep cyclical stocks.

He does not own them currently. The shares are very expensive. Now, investors are thinking post virus and with their offerings in cloud based services it is looking more like an essential services company. He chooses not to own it at such a high mid-20 PE.

A great company, a top cloud player. But a company needs advanced IT department to use Amazon's cloud service, whereas MSFT can support small/medium-sized software developers can sell them over MSFT's cloud. MSFT has been tested through fire and have passed the test during this pandemic, proving that their cloud services continue to work during massive use as people continue to work from home. MSFT has the right stuff.

GOOG vs MSFT? The challenge with GOOG is that 40-50% ad spend comes from small businesses. He expects small business will be struggling for revenue for the next few months. He would not be a buyer of GOOG. He does not own MSFT, but would prefer them over GOOG. MSFT has a very successful cloud service and he sees Teams being a good add to their revenue right now.
