    The market is not happy with the results and guidance.

    Windows and Office are showing weakness in both Consumer and Commercial segments.

    OP is just putting a negative spin on the news of Microsoft's recent release of the figures.

    It's typical. Apple crashes after earnings. Tomorrow it'll be back up.

    He isn't just "putting a negative spin." MSFT's stock is down a lot. Nearly 10% actually. Check MSN Money to see for yourself. Wall Street is unhappy.

    The averages are down 1.5 to 2.0% but MSFT is down a whopping 9.7% right now. The market analysts blame the MSFT crash on the weak outlook for next quarter and there's always the looming loss of Windows as a cash cow (multiple billions/year in lost profits). The stock was also way ahead of itself, so this is more of an adjustment to reality.

    Pretty much the bolded part. Analysts have been looking for an opportunity to change the focus from Nadella's honeymoon over to future performance. The trend lines for Windows and traditional Office is just that opportunity - add in the uncertainty of the Win10 upgrade giveaway and a new Office version and there you go.

    Yes, the future "giveaway" of Windows 10 is one of the things that has a lot of stock holders selling. Most of them are shortsighted and don't see the big picture of what long term payoffs will incur with this move.

    I wonder if a handful of enterprise scale HoloLens and Surface Hubs wins will help restore investor confidence. As far as hardware is concerned, these are the future of Microsoft's offerings, and enterprise (for now) would be the natural target market.

    I honestly fail to see the big deal. I remember last year, Apple *only* sold 45 million iPhones instead of 47 million and that made their stock tank by like $80 billion. Microsoft is giving Windows away and have significantly increased the number of Windows devices..... Which was the plan. This quarter plus the next few will probably be tough since the phone division doesn't have the big push from a flagship and Windows 10 is still in beta. This time next year will be a different story.

    You couldn't have say it better. Sometimes I get so irritated by these so called analysts. They have know idea how a company like MS or any other software company works. They just have the dollar $ in their forehead, as you mentioned "shortsighted." MS is transitioning and as many of us know every company that goes through one takes hits until the transition is finished.

    Investors seem to be incredibly stupid. Whenever something amazing is announced, they sell. Like the people who sold after Nokia announced the 920. The thing had tons of features no one had seen before in a phone, and then stock went down. Last week MS had the most positively-received announcement ever and even gave us holograms for Pete's sake, and investors are unhappy. What were they expecting for this to come as a disappointment? Do these guys go into every tech announcement fully expecting flying cars that cure cancer?

    Same thing happened when Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch and it just looked like another iPhone and smart watch. Apple unveils anything less than the Star Trek transporter and it tanks for a few days.

    Just like everything else the instant news availability has made investment a headache. One guy posts a video of the iPhone 6+ bending under pressure no sane person would subject it to and the stock tanks.

    It's the end as we know it for MS. Pretty soon, our PC, tablet, and phone screens will go black. Everyone jump ship! What platform will you land on?

    So the stock went from $46 a share to $41 a share which probably some short sellers already lost there shirts for betting against and people are starting to panic, oh please. When you see it drop more than %50 percent let me know and not due to a stock split either.
