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.

It rose to 10x book value, held for a while, and eventually broke out in 2019 to enjoy a very nice run. During this setback, it's returned below 10x book. The stock is in no man's land. $156 is key resistance. $122 is another. At the current $135, it's in no man's land.

He missed it on the way up but will get a chance on the way down. It held up better than he would have thought recently. It is not going away and is going to continue to innovate.

Tons of free cash flow. Free cash flow growth. Being on the cloud makes working away from the office a lot simpler. The virus has made people understand that the cloud makes everything simpler. Will continue to grow in next little while. Yield is 1.47%. (Analysts’ price target is $196.34)

AAPL vs MSFT? Both companies are sitting on gobs of cash, he says. MSFT sells more into business, under a subscription basis. AAPL is a little more chunky, as they are into devices and streaming services -- which is a little slow to get going. AAPL may be impacted more by the delay in selling their devices, but you still have to pay for your MSFT subscription. He would put 75% of your MSFT in now and only 50% of your AAPL investment now.

MSFT vs. IBM Likes MSFT, but it's too expensive for its growth rate. IBM is interesting. Has momentum, growing in the cloud. RedHat's revenue accelerating. Incredibly cheap. Good dividend and pretty safe. Only thing is, it's not best in breed, which is where the money will go first. But it's a fine name.

Likes it a lot, but last year MSFT got too expensive. Cloud is driving their multiple expansion. MSFT has held in very well in this market. Balance sheet fine and boasts a high ROE. The valuation remains too high for him though. It needs to pull back further for him.

Effect by the coronavirus? Yes, because they withdrew their guidance. It pays a decent dividend, is hugely profitable and Windows 10 sales are boost. This has had a huge run-up, so if you've owned it for a while, take some profits.

(A Top Pick Nov 28/19, Up 8%) One of the few super-large companies that are seeing increasing sales momentum. Amazon was the early leader, but MSFT has the competitive edge. Accelerating growth. Generates almost 50B of free cashflow. Going higher.

Certainly you should look at all high tech names, especially those with a monopoly. He prefers AMZN-Q and MSFT-Q. If Trump did not tell companies to move out of China, then certainly CoVid19 did.

MSFT vs. V Likes Visa's valuation. Likes the secular growth story of moving from cash and cheques to digital payments. MSFT is expensive, at 27x earnings with 12% growth rate. Visa is right at the 200-day moving average, 28x earnings with a 15% growth rate. Nothing wrong with MSFT, but Visa is a better name.
