Redburn analyst Neil Steer initiates coverage on Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $370.00.
The analyst comments "Azure is a key part of Microsoft’s positive equity story. In our view it is a good business that is worth $1trn. However, it is a technology laggard compared to AWS and GCP, which will become more apparent as organisations adopt more advanced technologies. To us, Azure is a two-sided sword. On the one hand, we think its deficits versus AWS and GCP are not well understood. But on the other hand, the market underestimates long-term growth for infrastructure providers. Despite Azure’s deficits, we think that a value of $1trn is not priced in Microsoft’s current valuation. We start coverage with a Buy rating and a $370 price target."
Shares of Microsoft closed at $256.48 yesterday.
