Market Overview

Vetr Crowd Slightly More Bullish On Microsoft

  • Shares of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) remain within striking distance of their 52-week high of $56.23.
  • The Vetr crowd turned incrementally bullish on Microsoft by upgrading their rating to 3.5 stars out of a possible five from a prior rating of just three stars.
  • Microsoft remains a popular stock among the Vetr crowd as more than 5 percent of the crowd are holding Microsoft in their watch-list.

Shares of Microsoft have gained approximately 20 percent since the beginning of 2015, outperforming the broader indices but underperforming compared to several large-cap tech stocks such as NetfliX that delivered a triple-digit percentage return over the same time period.

The Vetr crowd on Tuesday turned incrementally bullish on Microsoft's stock by upgrading it to 3.5-stars out of a possible five-star rating. This marks the second upgrade in Microsoft's stock over the past week as the prior three-star rating was issued just four days ago.

Despite the two recent upgrades, 73 percent of the crowd's ratings remain bearish. The crowd-sourced price target of $58.53 implies a modest potential upside of 5.37 percent.

A member of the crowd, Adam Rahim, pointed out that Microsoft's quarterly earnings are "sure to surpass those of previous years," especially following the release of a new set of laptops while Xbox consoles remain a holiday favorite. The sentiment was shared by another member of the crowd, Eric Hanson, who expects Surface products will perform "very well" over the U.S. holiday shopping season.
