The brokerage firm has raised the Price Target to $60, from a previous price target of $56 while the shares recommendation by the Brokerage Firm was released earlier today.
Compared to today’s opening price of $54.3, the activity mentioned above suggests that the analyst believes there is a potential upside of 10.5%.
For the record, Microsoft disclosed some inside buying and selling activities to the Securities Exchange, Gates William H Iii, director of Microsoft Corp, unloaded 4,000,000 shares at an average price of $53.58 on October 28, 2015.

Microsoft Corporation is engaged in developing, licensing and supporting a range of software products and services. The Company also designs and sells hardware, and delivers online advertising to the customers. It also offers cloud-based solutions that provide customers with software, services, and content over the Internet.
All those fields of activity are a contributory factor to MSFT stocks, as they generate several variables that need to be taken under consideration.
With all that being said, we are also keeping an eye on Microsoft, as the Lumia 950 is making a debut this week. If the sales reach a satisfying point, then MSFT stock could get a huge bump. Of course, there are some significant obstacles such as the unavailability of several mobile apps on the Windows platform.
