    Why Microsoft looks attractive: Garnry

    Peter Garnry
    Saxo Bank's head of equity strategy Peter Garnry is impressed with Microsoft's Q4 earnings. He says that they are much better than expected.

    Garnry highlights the strong performance of Microsoft Azure and he thinks that the company's unearned revenue figure looks particularly strong.

    The company did miss the target of one billion Microsoft 10 users, but Garnry says that the price earning is not high given the return on invested capital. He thinks the stock looks attractive and says that the share price could reach $60.

    Why Microsoft, with $100bn, is borrowing to buy LinkedIn

    Microsoft Corp. has enough cash to buy LinkedIn Corp. four times over. So why is it taking out a big loan to pay for its latest purchase? Maybe because it’ll lower the technology giant’s tax bill. For one thing, Microsoft will avoid having to pay a 35% tax rate to repatriate cash from overseas accounts. While it’s true that Microsoft has more than $100bn in cash and cash equivalents, most of it is parked offshore. Bringing home any of it to fund the proposed $26.2bn purchase, announced on Monday, would generate a tax bill.

    Microsoft sells patents to China's Xiaomi as part of long-term deal

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Microsoft Corp is selling about 1,500 of its patents to Chinese device maker Xiaomi, a rare departure for the US company and part of what the two companies say is the start of a long-term partnership. The deal also includes a commitment by Xiaomi to install copies of Microsoft software, including Office and Skype, on its phones and tablets.

Jonathan Tinter, corporate vice president at Microsoft, said the company was keen to tap into Xiaomi's young, affluent and educated users by having its products pre-installed on their devices.
