    Microsoft Leads an IT Landscape of Rising Profit

    Things are looking up for a whole basket of IT companies, according to a report today by Moody’s Investors Services analyst Stephen Sohn and his colleagues. Companies from Microsoft (MSFT) to Adobe Systems (ADBE) to Oracle (ORCL) to NetApp (NTAP) to Salesforce.com (CRM) are set to benefit from rising operating profit that’s vastly outpacing global GDP growth, write the authors. Moody’s upgraded its outlook on “diversified IT” as a group to “Positive” from what had been “stable” before, citing potential for Ebitda (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) to rise by “about 7.5%” this year, versus the global GDP growth projection of 3.4% in 2018 and 3.2% in 2019.
