Microsoft's out - Seana Smith what are the headline numbers? EPS EST: 85 CENTS REV EST: $25.78B --
Yahoo Finance's Jared Blikre joins Seana Smith from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to discuss the latest market moves.
Yahoo Finance’s Alexis Christoforous and Santosh Rao of Manhattan Venture Partners talk about earnings for some top tech companies.
Microsoft's Windows, the computer operating system that helped catapult the company to success more than three decades ago, is no longer a core business these days so much as a complement to the company's ...
Nasdaq stock futures rose overnight as Amazon, Intel and Microsoft surged on earnings, suggesting breakouts Friday. SVB Financial also rose to a buy zone.
The reason: Banks are rapidly emerging as big potential customers for the fast-growing, cloud-computing businesses of Amazon.com Inc., Alphabet Inc., and Microsoft Corp. That is making technology companies think twice about alienating them by becoming direct competitors. With consumers increasingly turning to their mobile devices for money transfers and financial advice, some analysts have predicted that tech companies will supplant traditional banks as providers of many banking services. Amazon wants to deliver everything you want to your doorstep, anywhere in the world.
Microsoft Corp. extended its streak of wins in the latest quarter and signaled further strength in the months ahead as the software giant moves into an era where its venerable Windows franchise plays a supporting role to its burgeoning cloud-computing operations. The cloud business, called Azure, jumped 93% in the fiscal third quarter, Microsoft reported Thursday. Microsoft doesn’t disclose revenue for either business, but in the preceding second quarter it said Azure jumped 98% and commercial Office 365 grew 41%.
Microsoft looks on track to record its strongest annual growth for more than a decade, following a revenue boost from its cloud business in the latest quarter and a bullish forecast for the final quarter of its fiscal year. Shares in the world’s biggest software maker jumped by 3 per cent in after-market trading as it predicted revenues of as much as $29.5bn in its current quarter, about $1.5bn above most analysts’ estimates. Amy Hood, chief financial officer, said recent heavy investment in everything from building a bigger salesforce to acquisitions like that of LinkedIn was starting to pay off and supported “our focus on being a growth company, even at our scale”.
CEO Satya Nadella touted growth in Azure, a customer win from Coca Cola and a heightened approach to security in Microsoft's fiscal third-quarter call.
Microsoft Corp. headed to a record high in the extended session Thursday after the company posted better-than-expected earnings and strong guidance. Microsoft stock (MSFT) rose more than 3% in the extended session after closing up 2.1% to $94.26 during regular trading. Microsoft stock has gained 39% in the past year, as the S&P 500 index (^GSPC) rose 11%.
Much of Microsoft's recent growth has been fuelled by its cloud computing business as more enterprises seek to cut data storage costs by adopting cloud-based software and moving their applications to data centres. The company's flagship cloud product Azure, which competes with Amazon.com Inc's (AMZN.O) dominant cloud infrastructure offering Amazon Web Services (AWS), recorded revenue growth of 93 percent in the third quarter ended March 31.
Microsoft reported steady growth in its latest round of financial results as the company's chief executive praised the performance of its cloud services. Chief executive Satya Nadella, who has overseen a shift in the firm's focus away from hardware such as smartphones and towards its software and cloud products such as Office 365, said the results reflected industry faith in the move. “Our results this quarter reflect the trust people and organisations are placing in the Microsoft Cloud,” he said.
Don't look now, but Amazon.com (AMZN) is quickly closing in on Apple (AAPL) for the top spot in market value. Fresh off a bang-up quarter that sent its shares up 7% in late trading, the e-commerce and ...
If you’re an investor in technology stocks … congratulations. You probably had a pretty good day. A day after the NYSE had to halt trading on tech stocks that were so high they were breaking its systems, many large technology (and technology-adjacent) companies reported their earnings today, April 26, and they all beat analysts’ expectations.…
Microsoft (MSFT) just released its third quarter 2018 financial results, posting adjusted earnings of $0.95 per share and revenues of $26.82 billion.
