Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has been given a $58.56 consensus price target by Wall Street analysts. This is the average number determined by First Call based on the analysts they take into consideration. Brokerage firm issued price targets can be useful for investors or potential investors who are looking to get an idea of where a stock might be headed. In comparing the target to current levels, shares closed the last trading session at $52.35.

When evaluating stocks, many investors also look to analysts for future earnings predictions and growth. Analysts are predicting $0.67 per share in earnings next quarter and $2.76 for the current year. In comparing the current price level of the equity to their moving averages, the shares are trading 0.33 off of the 50-day average of $51.65 and 1.62 away from the 200-day moving average of $50.36.


Another important factor to consider when evaluating a stock’s current and future value are the 52 week high and low levels. As of the most recent bid at the time of writing, Microsoft Corporation shares are trading -8.57% away from the 52-week high mark of 56.85 and +30.87% off the 52-week bottom of 39.72.

Taking a step further, investors might also consider evaluating a firm’s PEG ratio, which illustrates the relationship between stock price, earning per share, and the company’s growth rate. A firm with a PEG ratio below 1 is considered undervalued. A company with a PEG ratio around 1 is considered fairly valued. A company with a PEG ratio greater than 1 is considered overvalued. The stock has a current PEG of 2.00.
