After the last crash, its value was decimated. He saw it as a utility company, as people need to pay MSFT to upgrade. Tremendous job of growing its cloud business. He's not selling anytime soon.

In a sweet spot. The cloud computing pie is getting bigger, so it will do well even if its market share stays the same. VR and AI can be added to a company's cloud product, so MSFT can upsell, and it will have better margin growth. He'd buy it here. It may have a pullback, but won't fall too much. Small dividend, but a great stock that will continue to do well.

Likes its price momentum and stability. Has not been harmed by Covid. At the upper end of what's a reasonable price, but he holds it because of such strong price momentum. Wary of adding new money at this stage, as starting to see a rotation from growth to value. If you have a 10-year horizon, you won't go wrong with a quality company like this.

She'll add when it pulls back 5-10%. They had a good quarter, though EPS growth did slow 9% YOY, when it usually grows 15-20%. So, MSFT did feel some impact to the pandemic, but they did grow earnings. If MSFT is allowed to buy TikTok, she's heard they'll pay $30-50 billion in various reports. She doesn't know.

The most predictable large-cap tech stock. MSFT has an incredible platform of enterprise large- and mid-sized customers. The cloud business will continue to grow 35-40% for several years, while MSFT's software continues to be a key driving. Their webcasting business has performed well, and they can continue monetize LinkedIn. They have a lot going for them. MSFT has pulled back recently to $200 (from $216), and it could pull back further if tech falls out of favour. Offers great dividend growth.

Weaker share price after earnings? The earnings were very good, especially in gaming. The street did not like their cloud growth being slower than hoped for -- only 50% per year. Analysts will project forward slowing growth and this will lessen their earnings estimates. He would look for companies outside the Top 5 FANG performers for others that have better opportunities.

Earnings last night were terrific, but stock went down. Price has been strong in anticipation of earnings. Valuation has already built in positive news. High 30s multiple. A very good company, but not as good a stock as it is a company.

MSFT vs. ADBE Prefers MSFT. Neither stock is that inexpensive, with the rally. MSFT has a more diversified business model with PC and cloud business, which is gaining more market share. Strong balance sheet. Net cash position is solid. Very strong management team.

Capitalizing on work from home theme, cloud business. Expected to continue to fly in the post-pandemic world. Impressive free cash flow. 16 consecutive quarters of positive earnings surprise growth. Paying a bit of a premium for a 15% growth rate, but not a lot of names are dominant as they are. Yield is 0.95%. (Analysts’ price target is $210.40)

He owns MSFT. The valuation is trading at 33 times forward earnings, so he is not adding to his holdings here. He thinks it is trading about 20% higher than his buy price. He would wait for a pullback to buy. A great business overall. The current market trends currently favour these types of companies and he would continue to hold it if you already own it -- let your winners run (especially in this space).

Warren Buffet has 43% of his portfolio in APPL. APPL is a wonderful brand and strong company. He does not own it today. What worries him a little is that more than half of their revenues come from iPhone sales. They are diversifying, but it will take time. People are tending to keep their phones a year or two longer today it seems. The valuation has made it quite expensive. He would wait for a pullback or consider V, GOOG or MSFT. Warren Buffet must have some amazing incite to take on that concentration in the portfolio.

Tech stocks have done very well this year. Many are seeing revenue and earnings outlooks looking down, but MSFT-Q is the exception. It is a stock you want to own for stability and durability; however he would leave it as a hold at this point.

MSFT owns Linkedin and Skype, all low-contact tech that's thriving now. MSFT boasts steady revenues going forward. Trades at a slightly higher PE, but you're paying for growth and steady revenues.

One of the two biggest cloud companies (with Amazon). They have a huge base for Office software. They will continue to develop their Teams conference technology for work conferencing. They also have a videogaming and live sports business now in relation to virtual and augmented reality. They struck a deal with the NBA, which will be interesting to see in coming years. They're moving into communications and entertainment. Well-run and innovative, a must-own stock for the future. (Analysts’ price target is $198.19)
