Microsoft is scheduled to announce its financial results for the holiday shopping quarter of 2015 later today, and a lot is riding on the growth of its cloud business and Surface Pro.
So we looked into the search volume for their Office 360, Azure Cloud solution, Windows, and Surface Pro.
Windows had a peak search volume in the previous quarter, but otherwise flat. So no not too Bullish but a lot of people don’t have to search for “Windows” to download it.
Got a quick hit in October but settled back into it’s regular growth pattern. This sign is not strong enough to be either Bullish or Bearish.
The search volume is up 50% since last year which is a Bullish sign.
Azure Microsoft Cloud
The strongest component is the search for Azure cloud which is keeping up with Amazon Web Services.
The fundamentals of the business is sound with the analyzer showing Microsoft to be 31% undervalued.
Technicals show that a beat would send the stock to 56.5(+8.65) and a miss would send it down to $48(-7.69%), giving it a risk/reward ratio of 1.13.
