CIBC World Keeps 'Buy' on Microsoft


CIBC World maintains buy on Microsoft (MSFT).

Analyst Melissa Eisenstat says the press reported that Microsoft and the government are working toward a tentative settlement on the antitrust case that could be resolved in the next few days. Under the expected pact, Microsoft would have to divulge key technological information to companies that write software on its operating system platforms -- information that would have to be distributed uniformly to all software partners;. Also Microsoft could not give favorable pricing to certain software vendors or original equipment manufacturers. Eisenstat says she anticipated these concessions, and views the likely settlement as a very positive for the company. She maintains her $1.93 fiscal 2002 (June) EPS estimate.
