Microsoft stock (NASDAQ: MSFT) has lost 6.7% in the last week, underperforming the S&P 500 (up 1.2%). In addition, the same trend was observed over the last ten days (-8% vs 0.5%) and one month (-8.2% vs -1.5%). 

The technology sector witnessed a significant jump in demand during the Covid-19 crisis. However, the high growth rate slowed down in 2022. Further, the tough macroeconomic conditions added fuel to the woes. This led to a correction in technology stocks in 2022 – MSFT lost 22%. In addition, the recent drop in the MSFT stock price was impacted by a rating downgrade by UBS Group from buy to neutral.

Now, is Microsoft stock set to drop further, or could we expect some recovery? We believe that there is a 59% chance of a rise in Microsoft stock over the next month (21 trading days) based on our machine-learning analysis of trends in the stock price over the last ten years.
