    Microsoft acquires Mover; terms not disclosed:

    The company describes Mover as a leading provider of cloud file migration, including admin-led and self-service offerings.

    Microsoft will report fiscal 2020 first quarter results this afternoon:

    Microsoft (MSFT) will report fiscal 2020 first quarter (September) results this afternoon and management will host a call at 17:30.

    Analysts expect the software giant to report first quarter EPS up 9% to $1.24 with revenue up 11% to $32.24 bln. Microsoft guided for first quarter revenue of $31.7-32.4 bln, broken down into Productivity and Business Processes revenue of $10.7-10.9 bln, Intelligent Cloud revenue of $10.3-10.5 bln and Personal Computing revenue $10.7-11.0 bln, with COGS $10.55-10.75 bln and operating expenses of $10.1-10.2 bln.

    The company will provide segment revenue guidance for the second quarter on the conference call. The Street expects second quarter EPS up 15% to $1.27 with revenue up 11% to $35.95 bln.

    Microsoft has guided for double-digit revenue and operating income growth in fiscal 2020 with stable operating margins and operating expense up 11-12%. Wall Street expects fiscal 2020 EPS and revenue up 11%. The company guided for FY20 gaming revenue to be slightly down yr/yr as double digit growth in Xbox software and services is offset by declining console sales. Commercial cloud gross margin will expand slightly due to Azure.

    Microsoft is firing on all cylinders as its shift to cloud services continues to show plenty of momentum. Satya Nadella has done a phenomenal job shifting the company”s focus to cloud services since assuming the role of CEO in 2014.

    Microsoft has exceeded earnings estimates for thirteen consecutive quarters. Revenue has grown in the double digits for eight consecutive quarters.

    Last quarter, commercial bookings were up 25% excluding foreign exchange headwinds while commercial cloud revenue was up 42% ex-FX. Upside came from all three segments. Office 365 commercial revenue grew 34% ex-FX, LinkedIn grew 28%, Azure revenue grew 68%, while gaming revenue fell 8%.

    Microsoft”s public cloud continues to be the number one share gainer. Azure grew 68% in constant currency on top of 85% growth in the fourth quarter of last year. There is plenty of room for both Azure and Amazon”s AWS in the public cloud business.

    The stock has been in a smooth, strong uptrend since breaking out to a twelve-year high in 2013 but has traded in a fairly narrow range between ~$135-140 in recent months.

    Microsoft is the second largest publicly traded company in the world with a $1.03 trln market cap. The stock trades at 26x forward EPS estimates and 21x forward FCF estimates, a premium to mega cap tech stocks (relative to FCF) like Facebook, Amazon and Alphabet but a discount most cloud software businesses like Adobe, SAP and salesforce.

    The options market implies a 4% move in the stock by Friday.

    MSFT has reported earnings of 1.38 per share versus last year’s earnings of 1.14 per share.

    Microsoft beats by $0.14, beats on revs:

    Reports Q1 (Sep) earnings of $1.38 per share, $0.14 better than the S&P Capital IQ Consensus of $1.24; revenues rose 13.7% year/year to $33.05 bln vs the $32.24 bln S&P Capital IQ Consensus.

    Revenue in Productivity and Business Processes was $11.1 billion vs. $10.7-10.9 bln guidance and increased 13% (up 15% in constant currency), with the following business highlights: Office Commercial products and cloud services revenue increased 13% (up 15% in constant currency) driven by Office 365 Commercial revenue growth of 25% (up 28% in constant currency) Office Consumer products and cloud services revenue increased 5% (up 6% in constant currency) with continued growth in Office 365 Consumer subscribers to 35.6 million LinkedIn revenue increased 25% (up 26% in constant currency) Dynamics products and cloud services revenue increased 14% (up 16% in constant currency) driven by Dynamics 365 revenue growth of 41% (up 44% in constant currency)

    Guides Q2 on the call

    Microsoft guided Q2 revenue toward the low end of expectations; reaffirmed revenue and operating income outlook, raised operating margin outlook to slight growth:

    Guided Q2 revenue $35.15-35.95 bln vs. $35.95 bln consensus.

    Reaffirmed double-digit revenue and operating income growth, driven by continued momentum in the commercial business; raised operating margins to slight expansion from stable, despite continued investments in growth.
