Microsoft profit, revenue beat estimates on cloud growth

MSFT

(Reuters) - Microsoft Corp beat Wall Street estimates for quarterly profit and revenue on Wednesday, powered by adoption of its Azure cloud computing service and the subscription version of its Office software. Azure, Microsoft's flagship cloud product, competes with market leader Amazon.com's Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide computing power to businesses. But growth in the unit dipped to 73 percent in the latest reported quarter. Microsoft's so-called "intelligent cloud" unit, which contains its Azure services, posted revenue of $9.65 billion (7.5 billion pounds), above Wall Street estimates of $9.28 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. Total revenue rose 14 percent to $30.57 billion in the third quarter ended March 31, beating analysts' average estimate of $29.84 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

MSFT QCOM +1 more MSFT QCOM KO

U.S. stock futures are circling unchanged this morning as traders take a breather following yesterday’s fresh highs in the Nasdaq-100 and S&P 500. In the options pits, the dash to record highs generated increasing volumes. As you might expect, calls led the bulls’ charge. Adjusted earnings grew to 48 cents per share, beating estimates by 2 cents. And revenue climbed to $8.02 billion, handily beating forecasts for $7.9 billion. Activity fizzed to 424% of the average daily volume, with 113,617 total contracts traded; 82% of the trading came from call options alone.

Approach Microsoft Stock Cautiously as it Goes Into Earnings

MSFT

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) stock reports earnings Wednesday after the market close. The company usually beats estimates, so the actual numbers may have little effect on Microsoft stock. However, both the stock price and the valuation continue to approach elevated levels. They also expect revenues of $29.84 billion. If this prediction proves correct, it will represent an 11.3% increase from year-ago levels, when the Redmond, Washington-based software giant brought in $26.82 billion. None of this news will make Microsoft stock a sell except to very-short-term traders. However, after the recent move higher, new buyers should probably hold off on MSFT going into earnings. As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Best Replacement HDMI Cable for Xbox One S and X in 2019

MSFT

Best Replacement HDMI Cable for Xbox One S and X in 2019At Windows Central, we test hundreds of products and accessories year-round, with a particular focus on Windows, Surface, Xbox, and gaming. The Amazon Basics HDMI cable is everything you need to get back up and running with your Xbox One S or X if your existing cable has fallen afoul of a curious pet's jaws or angry partner's scissors. Almost all games are hard-capped at 30 or 60 frames per second (FPS) at an absolute maximum, meaning you should probably just skip on more expensive HDMI 2.1 cables until the next generation of Xbox consoles. It doesn't future-proof you for an 8K future, which will require HDMI 2.1 cables, but since the Xbox One X and S aren't likely to be able to take advantage of many of those new HDMI 2.1 features, you're better off just waiting to upgrade to a next-gen console, which will obviously come bundled with a compatible HDMI cable in the box.

Clouds Part: Amazon And Microsoft Cloud Businesses In Focus Ahead Of Earnings

MSFT AMZN

Microsoft is scheduled to report fiscal Q3 earnings after the close Wednesday, with Amazon expected to report Q1 earnings after the close Thursday. As a reminder, cloud computing provides a way for businesses to access servers, storage, databases and application services over the Internet. A company like AMZN or MSFT owns and maintains the network-connected hardware required for these services, while their business customers can use what they need through the web without having to build or buy expensive hardware platforms. As the two companies’ cloud businesses grow, they’re touting partnerships and expanding their reach even to competitors in an effort to climb to the top. For instance, earlier this year, MSFT announced a partnership with Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (NASDAQ: WBA) to develop new health care delivery models and for WBA to migrate most of its infrastructure into MSFT’s Azure cloud. At the same time, Amazon counts one of its own biggest competitors—Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL)—as a major customer for its cloud platform, with CNBC reporting this week that AAPL is spending more than $30 million a month on Amazon’s cloud even as AAPL invests to build its own data storage. Like MSFT, the company could conceivably be dealing with slower capital expenditures from customers, and both MSFT and AMZN faced a stronger dollar in early 2019 vs. a year ago that might have slowed sales to overseas customers.Figure 1: HEADS IN THE CLOUD: It’s been a quick elevator ride higher for shares of Amazon (AMZN - candlestick) and Microsoft (MSFT - purple line) so far in 2019, as this year-to-date chart shows.
