Microsoft reported impressive first-quarter 2017 results driven by strong cloud growth. The continuing enterprise strength, benefits from the Office 365 subscription model, strong growth prospects of Azure and promising new products will continue to generate top-line growth in 2016. Additionally, the expansion of Microsoft HoloLens in 6 new markets will improve the company's posiition in the augmented and virtual reality space. Further, the anticipated completion of the LinkedIn acquisition will boost Microsoft's presence in the social media market. The deal will also strenghthen the company's enterprise business. Despite the cloud focus, we believe execution and foreign exchange risks remain. Additionally, competition is stiff and the company’s dominant position in the PC market continues to be challenged.
