Forecast & Opinion from my Study / Analytics:
Microsoft Corp. and other Technology Companies are tracking well. Although (MSFT) is in a strong Rally (with the recent pull-back) it is always an excellent contributor to my Analytics.
My Forecast is not as bright as you may think! (I will be more specific upon request).
My Opinion is to HOLD in anticipation of taking profits.
If you own or are considering owning Software Companies, the securities are definitely a mixed bag. Microsoft Corp. is currently strong Technically but I have reservations about my Fundamental Valuation, therefore I have placed it on an Initial Bearish Forecast - "Warning."
My Analytics (weighting) for my Fundamental Valuation play a vital role in profitable managing money. At this time my Valuations of (MSFT) are not bad but not as positive at perhaps you are being told by other sources. Plainly stated they are improving but Flat.
