$SIAL 1Q15 10-Q: Effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2015 increased to 28% vs. 27.2% for the same period of 2014. The increase in the effective tax rate is primarily attributable to increases in uncertain tax positions which were partially offset by lower tax rates in certain foreign jurisdictions.
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.
