  7. Microsoft wins U.S. Army contract for augmented-reality headsets, worth up to $21.9 billion over 10 years (31/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Microsoft wins U.S. Army contract for augmented-reality headsets, worth up to $21.9 billion over 10 years News broke maybe 30 mins ago. MSFT shot up 1% on that news, up more than 2% on the day. Some highlights from the CNBC article: "Microsoft will deliver to the U.S. Army over 120,000 devices based on its HoloLens augmented-reality headset." "The standard-issue HoloLens, which costs $3,500, enables people to see holograms overlaid over their actual environments and interact using hand and voice gestures." "A group of employees called on Microsoft to cancel the HoloLens contract. “We did not sign up to develop weapons, and we demand a say in how our work is used,” the employees wrote in an open letter regarding the HoloLens contract." Thoughts on this news? What do you guys think about some employees opposing the decision? All I know is Microsoft is a monster of a company. Just another reason to continue holding I guess.   submitted by   /u/runitbackturb0 [link]   [comments]

  9. Microsoft is developing new hardware to bring its ‘Netflix for games’ service to TVs (10/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Microsoft is developing dedicated streaming hardware that people will be able to hook up to their TVs to use its Netflix-like cloud gaming service. The company is betting the future of video games will be a subscription-based model where people pay a certain amount of money each month to get access to a plethora of titles. Its Xbox Game Pass service does exactly that, offering access to a library of games developed both in-house and by third-party studios. That’s mostly digital downloads, but last year streaming was added with Microsoft publicly releasing Xbox Cloud Gaming. The feature is sort of like a “Netflix for games,” allowing gamers to play games that are hosted on remote servers and then streamed to users over the internet. A number of other companies have launched similar game-streaming services, including Google with Stadia and Amazon with Luna. Now, Microsoft is aiming to push its cloud gaming product to other platforms. It started rolling out Xbox Cloud Gaming to some users via a web browser on iPhones, iPads and PCs in April (Microsoft couldn’t launch a proper mobile app for cloud gaming on Apple devices due to a dispute over App Store policies). And on Thursday, the company announced it wants to expand the service to TVs as well. One way it plans to do that is by partnering with manufacturers to add cloud gaming to smart TVs. But Microsoft is also developing streaming devices which users can plug into their TV or computer monitor to stream games from the cloud. The company didn’t elaborate on what those devices could look like, though it’s reminiscent of Amazon’s Fire TV and Google’s Chromecast dongles, both of which now support cloud gaming. In addition, Microsoft says it is working with mobile carriers like Telstra in Australia to offer new Xbox subscription models. It’s also expanding cloud gaming to four new countries — Australia, Brazil, Mexico and Japan — later this year, and aims to publicly launch the browser-based version of the software to all members of its $15-a-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription in the coming weeks. Microsoft said it plans to add cloud gaming to its new Xbox Series X console, which launched last November to compete with Sony’s PlayStation 5. In the next few weeks, the company will also upgrade the servers that power its cloud gaming service from its old Xbox One hardware to the Xbox Series X. Microsoft competes aggressively with Sony when it comes to gaming. But it’s taking a different strategy to its Japanese counterpart. While Sony is known for blockbuster exclusives that can only be played on a PlayStation console, Microsoft is focusing on embedding its Xbox services onto multiple platforms, including mobile and PC. Microsoft has been stepping up its investments in gaming, buying the iconic studio Bethesda for $7.5 billion in its biggest video game-related acquisition yet. The company is holding a joint event with Bethesda on Sunday as part of the E3 gaming conference to show off new games, with fans speculating they will reveal some details about a hotly-anticipated sci-fi game called Starfield. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/10/e3-microsoft-xbox-cloud-gaming-tv.html   submitted by   /u/TaxShield [link]   [comments]

  13. Microsoft in advanced talks to buy Nuance for about $16 billion, announcement could come Monday (11/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/04/11/microsoft-in-advanced-talks-to-buy-speech-recognition-company-nuance.html A deal could be announced as soon as Monday, said one person who is familiar with the talks. Microsoft first approached Nuance in December, the person said, and is willing to pay about $56 per share for Nuance, the person said. That would give Nuance an equity value of about $16 billion, representing a 23% premium over the stock’s Friday closing price of $45.58 per share. At $16 billion, Nuance would be Microsoft’s second largest acquisition, after the $27 billion purchase of LinkedIn in 2016. Microsoft just finished the Bethesda acquisition for 7.5 billion. It is talking to acquire Discord. Now it is acquiring Nuance for 16 billion. Microsoft really spending cash hoard to acquire potential companies to further strengthen the moats. It is already breaking 52 weeks high everyday. This year will be bright for Microsoft and the stock price will hit at least $300.   submitted by   /u/coolcomfort123 [link]   [comments]

So my question is basically, why doesn't everyone just buy Bull ETN's with gearing to increase their returns? I know ETN's are more risky, and volatility is your enemy, but microsoft isn't very volatile at all. Scrolling throught some Bull ETN's on microsoft It seems like you would make money on almost any time frame. More money than just buying the stock.   submitted by   /u/PurpleFiat [link]   [comments]

  26. Bet on life. Bet on Surface Oncology (02/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Bet on life. Bet on surface oncology Why don’t we boost stocks that save people’s lives? AMC is great but imagine what we could do if we did the same for cancer companies. One I like is SURF A company with top management that barely dilutes but either raises money through loans or licensing their drugs. In late March the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted an orphan drug designation to SF617, which is intended to treat pancreatic cancer. Surface owns the full rights to SF617, meaning that it will get the full benefits of the designation's package of additional allowances and intellectual property protections if the drug makes it through the clinical trial process. Collaboration with Merck. In the collaboration, Merck's first-line oncology drug, Keytruda, will be investigated in a phase 1 clinical trial in conjunction with Surface's SRF388. Liver cancer and kidney cancer are the intended targets, and investors will get an update on the program's progress in early June, at the American Society of Clinical Oncology's 2021 annual meeting. THIS FRIDAY!!!!! Financially, Surface is in good condition, though it has no recurring revenue as of yet. Its $175 million in cash is more than enough for it to continue with research and development (R&D) work through 2023. License with GSK and Novartis. IND’s coming up. Lots of milestones upcoming in clinical trials. SUB 500M for an immunotherapy company that has PROVEN the drug already works.
