Always Stick with Best of Breed: Whole Foods vs Fairway

02/07/14 - 06:39 PM EST

New Microsoft CEO Removes Overhang; Michael Kors Shines

02/04/14 - 04:27 PM EST

The market on Tuesday turned up, and in my quick video, I focus on two key news items of today. Microsoft's announcement of Satya Nadella, who is currently the executive vice president of Cloud and Enterprise, marks a safe choice for the company but does highlight the company's focus of cloud and of enterprise versus consumer. The company has missed many opportunities in social, mobile and cloud, just as Facebook celebrates its ten year anniversary today. Retailer Michael Kors is surging after posting sales up 50% with European comps of 73% a real standout. Michael Kors and Under Armour have shown that in retail, execution can win out versus a sluggish macro and a polar vortex.
