Here's Why Microsoft (MSFT) Stock Looks Like a Buy Right Now

MSFT

Microsoft MSFT stock has been hurt far less during the recent market downturn than some of its fellow titans such as Apple AAPL and Amazon AMZN.

Microsoft is close to bringing recognition of multiple different voices to Cortana

MSFT

Consultant/developer and self-professed Microsoft fan Jonathan (@obrienclanman) said on Twitter today, December 11, that he recently purchased an Xbox One and set up the already-announced Xbox skill for Cortana. Xbox was added as a device in his Cortana profile. When he clicked on the device, it had a button that provided an option to train Cortana for multiple devices. The ability for Cortana to distinguish between different voices is important if Microsoft intends to push Cortana as a trustworthy assistant which can interact with users in appropriate situations.

UBS Prepares Cloud Move to Secret Microsoft Data Centers

MSFT

(Bloomberg) -- UBS Group AG reached a deal worth hundreds of millions of Swiss francs to use Microsoft Corp. cloud services in a bid to reduce costs while complying with strict Swiss privacy laws, according to people familiar with the matter.

Banks in Switzerland, the world’s largest center for offshore wealth, are under pressure to cut costs as low interest rates and the dismantling of the nation’s banking secrecy squeeze profits. While using cloud services can eliminate the need to maintain costly data centers, Switzerland’s financial regulator Finma enforces strict laws regarding what data can be moved outside of the country. That in part spurred Microsoft to build facilities in the country to meet demand from local banks, insurers and pharmaceutical companies, according to Microsoft spokesman Tobias Steger.
