Wall Street sets Microsoft stock price for the next 12 months

Wall Street sets Microsoft stock price for the next 12 months

Despite being one of the biggest companies in the world for years, the technology giant Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) has recently been on a quest to grow ever larger.

One of its most lucrative investments of the previous years has proven to be its support for OpenAI – the makers of ChatGPT – which helped MSFT stock rise relentlessly during the ongoing artificial intelligence (AI) boom, nearly doubling in value since late 2022.

Microsoft, which became the world’s largest company by market cap at the start of 2024, has not only been focusing on AI but has also, in recent months, completed one of the largest corporate acquisitions in history with its purchase of the gaming giant Activision Blizzard.

Given the scale of MSFT’s stock market growth, which has seen the firm’s share rise 10% this year, nearly 34% in the last 52 weeks, and more than 220% in the last 52 weeks of trading, the question becomes whether the blue-chip can maintain its upward momentum and keep its sky-high valuation in the coming months.

Analysts assess Microsoft’s prospects in the coming 52 weeks

Given Microsoft’s historic performance and the big tech firm’s continued investments in the AI boom, with the most recent coming in the form of a $3.3 billion investment in a center in Wisconsin, it is hardly surprising that analysts are generally bullish.

Indeed, the average 12-month price target, according to data retrieved from TipRanks, stands at $489.56. This means that Wall Street experts, overall, expect MSFT to jump another 19.25% in the coming 52 weeks, given that Microsoft price today stands at $409.79.

In fact, the bullish attitude is so prevalent that even the current lowest price target – assigned by RBC Capital in late April, would see MSFT stock surge 9.8%. 

Additionally, the highest estimate, provided by Truist Securities, considers a 46.5% bull run to $600 as the most likely scenario for the coming 12 months.
