Research and Markets: Microsoft - Playing Catch up with Windows 8: 2013

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/27jmwv/microsoft) has announced the addition of the "Microsoft - Playing Catch up with Windows 8" company profile to their offering.

Investment thesis - A digital dinosaur lumbers on.

Microsoft had an excellent financial track record until recently; Microsoft is hampered by ineffective management execution. Since S. Ballmer became CEO in 2000, there has been a series of product failures and strategic blunders.

The main problem is limited prospects due to dependence on a maturing PC industry

Microsoft is a digital dinosaur: large, un-innovative, slow and heading for extinction.

A lot hinges on Windows 8's success; to stay relevant with the shift to mobile devices.

Uninspiring 2013 Q2 results following Windows 8 release.

Q2 revenues rose 3%, EBIT margins fell 2% and GAAP EPS fell 3%. Revenues & margins have been in a downward trend since 2010 as fundamentals erode.

Independent, buy-side, fundamental, financial analysis.
