Microsoft didn’t disappoint.
While most analysts were bracing for a weak quarter, you can see that Microsoft toppled expectations, beating forecasts on the top and bottom line:
- Earnings per share (EPS) came in at $2.45, surpassing the consensus estimate of $2.23.
- Revenue hit $52.86 billion, exceeding expectations of $51.02 billion.
The fact that all the “experts” are now seeing what we already knew to be true tells us one thing: TradeSmith’s proprietary trading tools give us the ultimate edge. Even before Microsoft reported its earnings, our analytics told us the company was firing on all cylinders.
The company’s stock is in our Green Zone in a healthy investable state, it has a Business Quality Score of 99 out of 100, and Quantum Edge Pro Editor Jason Bodner said his own system spotlighted Big Money pouring into MSFT — with seven buy signals triggered within the last three months:
As I write this early Wednesday morning, Microsoft shares have jumped more than 7%.
There’s a fine art to “reading” earnings reports — there are the numbers and there is also what the company says about those numbers — and the storyline here is super bullish. Microsoft execs are excited about the early demand ramp-up they see for AI. And they expect artificial intelligence to become a true revenue driver over time.
The takeaway from this bit of C-suite insight: We’re in the very early innings for AI — but Microsoft is one of the select few companies that has been able to cash in on big new opportunities, over and over again.
There’s another takeaway here — one that relates to investors like you.
There are two main ways to “win” and make money through AI.
First, you can buy AI stocks.
And, second, you can use AI to ramp up your own win rate — across all stocks, all sectors, all asset classes.
We helped you with the first — giving you Microsoft.
Just think about having that capability.
Meet An-EPicture two scenarios.
In the first, you look at a stock and can know, with a high degree of certainty, that it’ll be 15% higher a month from now.
In the second, you look at a different stock and can know that it’s going to take a 15% haircut sometime in the next month.
You’d buy the first stock, knowing a profit is headed your way.
And you’d avoid the second, feeling sanguine having dodged a painful loss.
Well, you don’t have to imagine that happening.
With incredible computing power and AI at our fingertips, our team embarked on the most important research project in our company’s history… one that could help you make much bigger stock market returns than you’re making now, while taking less risk.
Let me show you how it works — with an example of a prediction the technology made last year.
We’re looking here at the stock for Domino’s Pizza Inc. (DPZ):
An-E predicted the stock would go up about 7% to 8% in the next month or two.
Good information to have, as in this market, you can’t afford to overlook any opportunity to make money.
When it came time for An-E to put its money where its AI mouth is, here’s how it played out:
Over the next two months, DPZ went up about 7%.
As predictions go, this one was nearly spot on.
And that’s just one example…
It’s not an exaggeration to say that this is a new edge most investors have been lacking — and desperately need in today’s volatile, uncertain, and risky markets.
If you hold on to stocks our system sees a higher move for, you could withstand volatility with confidence and earn better returns.
On the other hand, if you dodge the stocks that are expected to take a hit, your portfolio could avoid punishing losses.
Combined — building your gains, avoiding losses — you’ll watch your wealth grow faster. And you’ll do this with substantially less stress and uncertainty about the future.
