Citing “tepid demand” for the Surface, lower forecasted operating system revenue, the general decline of the PC market and anticipated failures to meet street expectations in the coming quarters, multiple major Wall Street firms including Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have lowered their rating of Microsoft from overweight (a stock one should own disproportionately more of relative to their holdings in the stock’s given sector, in short a buy rating, or an exception you should make in your portfolio diversification efforts) to neutral (a stock to have an average stake in relative to your other holdings).

Companies that have significantly stronger aggregate analyst ratings include Apple and Google.
