Resilient Azure Helps Microsoft Drive Solid Results; Macro Drives Lower Outlook; FVE Cut to $310

Dan Romanoff Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Dan Romanoff |

Microsoft reported solid fiscal second-quarter 2023 results, including generally inline revenue and modest EPS upside after factoring in the $1.17 billion restructuring charge taken to reduce headcount and rationalize facilities. The outlook for March, however, was once again shy of our below-consensus estimates. Azure continues to decelerate but came in slightly better than guidance, while macro pressures seem to be steady or slightly worse. Bulls can highlight Microsoft’s good growth in remaining performance obligation and Azure, while bears can point to decelerating revenue growth and light guidance. We are lowering our fair value estimate for wide-moat Microsoft to $310 per share, from $320, and continue to view shares as attractive.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
