Microsoft Stock Upgraded

msft-11-21-2006.png

Analysts have upgraded Microsoft stock, acknowledging the amazing recovery and growth the stock has shown lately. MSFT is now barking at $30, a level it hasn’t held in four years. Microsoft stock is up 38% since its low point in mid-June, adding over eighty billion dollars in shareholder value, more than half the entire value of Google.

As exciting as Google stock has been lately, Microsoft has been a monster the last few months, looking a lot like a dotcom wonder all over again. If the first quarter of 2007, which sees the consumer releases of Vista and Office, and the first true test of the Xbox 360, turns out as well as I’m hoping it does, Microsoft may finally shed its image as a sleeping giant. This is an exciting time, people!

Credit Suisse upgraded Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) to “Outperform” from Neutral, citing the company’s strengthening market position in digital entertainment and potential revenue upside.

JP Morgan upgraded Darden Restaurants, Inc. (NYSE:DRI) to Neutral from Underweight, reflecting lower commodity costs and solid performance in Olive Garden.
