    And yet out came another quarterly earnings report yesterday with $24.52 billion in revenue and $6.56 billion in net income.
    Which is to say that for all the anti-hype, Microsoft is an extremely successful business.

  • W/ $9.00 a share in cash, a projected $3.20 annual EPS, and a growth projection in the 7% range shouldn't Mr. Softy at least deserve a p/e of 15, thereby pushing the stock to around $45?

  • Yes with a loss on each one.

     

    Excerpts from Microsoft Quarterly Report
    Surface revenue was $893 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013.
    Surface cost of revenue was $932 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013.

     

    I hope they don't sell too much better or there are some license fees/ creative accounting that is not included in this?

  • Surface is gaining traction. As I said before, surface is the new standard in terms of functionality.

  • Now 2 quarters in a row with significant beatings on the estimates should force investors to rethink their opinion of the company, particularly those who still point to sluggish PC sales. It's quite obvious at this point that the company is thriving in the wake of declining PC sales and a rough reception of W8.
