  2. EARNINGS OUTLOOK October 2021

    The slowdown in personal computer sales due to supply-chain issues in recent months would have hurt Microsoft Corp. in past years, but the company’s pivot to cloud computing and cloud software should insulate it from any earnings fallout.

    Microsoft is scheduled to report its fiscal first-quarter earnings soon, as it rolls out its new Windows 11 operating system and PC makers struggle to deliver new machines. While the Microsoft of Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer would have faced a lot of Wall Street pessimism if PC shipments were mangled and a new operating system was not quickly adopted, Satya Nadella’s Microsoft should be just fine.

    That is because analysts and investors are mostly focused on Azure, Microsoft’s cloud-computing answer to Amazon.com Inc.’s Amazon Web Services, as well as cloud-software offerings, decreasing the importance of Microsoft’s PC business.
