Microsoft hit record high

Microsoft hit record high

Updated

What happened?

These days, investors’ attention is on Microsoft ahead of the company’s Windows 11 event on June 24. MSFT will uncover the “next generation of Windows”, that’s why the stock price has surged: the tech giant reached the all-time high of $263.50. It is still unclear what the company will release during the event, but investors tend to follow the rule “buy the rumor, sell the fact”.

Forecasts

According to TipRanks, Microsoft currently holds a “Strong Buy” recommendation. According to JPMorgan, the stock price will hit $270 – the lowest price target among other banks. Goldman Sachs set a price target at $340, which is 30% higher than the current levels.

Cloud acquisition

Just to remind you, Microsoft is not only Office 365, it’s a lot more! Think of Xbox and Teams. The company's cloud offerings are Azure infrastructure services, Office 365 productivity software, and Dynamics enterprise software. Besides, Microsoft owns LinkedIn, Skype, OneDrive, and GitHub.                    

Microsoft takes one of the leading positions in cloud computing among Google and Amazon. After the coronavirus outbreak, cloud services become essential for most companies. In 2020, the company introduced Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare. In April 2021, it bought Nuance, a leading provider of artificial intelligence services for healthcare. You can hardly find any more important industries amid the Covid-19 pandemic than cloud computing, AI, and healthcare. It seems that Microsoft is engaged in almost all high-potential industries!

Technical outlook

Microsoft is moving inside the ascending channel. Now, it’s getting closer to the psychological mark of $270.00. It’s unlikely to break it on the first try as the RSI indicator is approaching the 30.0 level, which signals the stock will be soon overbought. However, if Microsoft surprises investors on June 24, it may skyrocket! Keep updated! Support levels are at the low of June 16 at $255.00 and the 100-day moving average of $245.00.
