Technical analysis indicates bearish momentum build-up. The MACD’s divergence from the signal continues to expand below the oscillator. The stock is trading below the 50-day moving average. The 10-day and 20-day averages continue to sink.

This is the first time in more than two years that the share price moved below the 50-day average. Ordinarily, Microsoft triggers buy signals when the price touches the 50-day average. Current market jitters indicate that Microsoft will not be sticking to its pattern and is therefore a sell.

Summary

Microsoft is a fundamentally strong company. Market pricing, however, shows that the stock is overvalued and bears have taken control. The analysis recommends selling Microsoft.
