About Microsoft Performance

To evaluate Microsoft Stock as a possible investment, you need to clearly understand its upside, downside potential, and overall future performance outlook. You may be satisfied when Microsoft generates a 15% return over the last few months, but what if the market is generating 25% over the same period? In this case, it makes sense to compare Microsoft's stock performance with different market indexes, such as the Dow or NASDAQ Composite. These indexes can act as benchmarks that will help you to understand Microsoft stock market performance in a much more refined way. At Macroaxis, we take it even further. The Macroaxis performance score is an integer between 0 and 100 that represents Microsoft's market performance from a risk-adjusted return perspective. Generally speaking, the higher the score, the better is overall performance as compared to other investors. The score is normalized against the average investing universe (the best we can interpret from the data available). Within this methodology, scores of individual equity instruments will always be inferior to the scores of portfolios of equities as portfolios typically diversify a lot of unsystematic risks away. The formula to derive the Macroaxis score bases on multiple unequally-weighted factors. For more information, refer to our portfolio performance evaluation section.
