$HOT expects 2016 EPS before special items of about $3.00-3.06, depreciation and amortization of about $280MM and interest expense of about $115MM. Full year effective tax rate is expected to be about 33%, and cash taxes from operating earnings are expected to be about $155MM.
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.
