$DE said that it is experiencing weakness in their order book year-over-over, despite some firm US economic indicators like positive GDP growth, increased construction spending and expected housing starts increase of 1MM units in 2016. Sluggish economic growth outside US and mix of housing starts in the US led to the weakness in the order book.
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.
