Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft (MSFT) will have an “outsized” effect on the financial prospects of the entire technology field in 2018, according to a report today from analysts at credit rating house Moody’s, including Stephen Sohn and his colleagues. Across the landscape of IT vendors, including, but not limited to, IBM (IBM), Dell, Cisco Systems (CSCO), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Accenture (ACN), Microsoft and Apple "collectively account for about half the industry’s operating profit,” write Sohn and his team. Most of this is coming from cloud: "Revenue growth will be driven by equipment and software purchases and services related to the ongoing migration to cloud-based IT systems from legacy IT architectures,” they write.
On the whole, tech giants are poised to deliver “stable” revenue and profit in 2018, but two companies in particular are expected to be the main reasons for continued growth.
Microsoft (MSFT) has risen dramatically in two years among cloud computing customers, according to a report today by Bernstein’s Mark Moerdler, and its Azure unit may now have a higher customer count among enterprise users than does Amazon’s (AMZN) AWS service. The implication is that Azure may ultimately reach the same size in revenue as AWS, Moerdler thinks, while having better operating profit margin. Moerdler, who rates Microsoft stock Outperform, with a $100 price target, draws upon the work of his colleague Toni Sacconaghi, who follows Apple (AAPL) and other hardware names, and who yesterday released a survey he conducted in November of 105 chief information officers in the U.S. and Europe.
