$SO said that excluding certain adjustments, EPS for 2Q16 was $0.77 vs. $0.71 in 2Q15. This was mainly driven by retail revenue effects at $SO's traditional operating companies and lower non-fuel operating and maintenance costs. This was offset by lower usage across all customer classes, higher D&A expense and higher interest expense.
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
