StockInvest.us, 2 months ago


The Microsoft stock price fell by -0.661% on the last day (Wednesday, 17th Apr 2024) from $414.58 to $411.84. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 2.08% from a day low at $410.33 to a day high of $418.88. The price has fallen in 6 of the last 10 days and is down by -2.05% for this period. Volume fell on the last day along with the stock, which is actually a good sign as volume should follow the stock. On the last day, the trading volume fell by -922 thousand shares and in total, 16 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $6.50 billion.

On Apr 17, 2024, it was reported that Wells Fargo gave MSFT a "Buy" grade with a "hold" action.

Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 5.65% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $435.12 and $460.80 at the end of this 3-month period.


There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The Microsoft stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term Moving Averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $419.92 and $418.03. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday, March 21, 2024, and so far it has fallen -4.08%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.

Microsoft finds support from accumulated volume at $408.59 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

In general the stock tends to have very controlled movements and with good liquidity the risk is considered very low in this stock. During the last day, the stock moved $8.55 between high and low, or 2.08%. For the last week the stock has had daily average volatility of 1.88%.

The Microsoft stock holds several negative signals and despite the positive trend, we believe Microsoft will perform weakly in the next couple of days or weeks. Therefore, we hold a negative evaluation of this stock.
