Microsoft Unveils Windows 10

BY Jim Cramer and Stephanie Link | 09/30/14 - 03:56 PM EDT
Stocks in Focus: MSFT

Today, Microsoft (MSFT:Nasdaq) showed off its next version of Windows, called Windows 10 (hardly a surprise), which is expected to ship in the second half of 2015.

Some of the new features are having one app store to run all applications and one experience to support each PC, tablet or phone. But most importantly, it is tailored to the enterprise market, with strong device management, customized app access and superior security features. It will also include some of the popular features from Windows 7 and 8 (like menu function, universal search, touch) so that it will be a smoother transition than has occurred in the past. Interestingly, the company plans to support the enterprise market with this product for “well over” 10 years and is a departure from the patch work that has gone on (IT managers trying to deal with security and management challenges across different devices and platforms) with the introduction of various new Windows products. In the end they are trying to make the consumer and enterprise experience better and position the company for gaining more share in a market where they dominate.

While this won’t change numbers in the near term, we like all of the data points and boxes that are getting checked from the new management team and the customer service orientation in this product is another example of management “getting it.” This remains on our buy list in the mid-$40s or below.

Regards,

Jim Cramer, Stephanie Link, and TheStreet Research Team
