  • More on General Motors' U.S. sales [View news story]
    Do the number of recalls amount to a new approach or change in direction at GM regarding safety and an interest in correcting problems, or is it just a public relations stunt? Or, are the recalls the logical first step and what should come next is a corporate management purging?

    On the showrooming issue, I think that prices are becoming more competitive between the two (BBY and AMZN). However, there's still the sales tax issue and simple fact that Amazon doesn't have margin pressure like BBY since it doesn't have to supply its own physical retail space. If BBY goes away, I'm not sure how AMZN showcases their products?

CFO Amy Hood says Microsoft is still looking at ways to adjust Windows pricing, including for smaller devices. Server & Tools is expected to grow in the high-single-digits again. The Office division's business sales (85% of total) are seen growing in the mid-single-digits; consumer sales will be soft. Entertainment & Devices is seen declining in the low-single-digits ahead of the Xbox One launch. Capex is expected to keep growing thanks to Azure investments. Shares -6.4% AH.
