As of July 4, $WAT repurchased aggregate of 7.6MM shares at a cost of $750MM under the May 2012 repurchase program, which is now completed. $WAT has $604MM authorized for future repurchase under the May 2014 plan. Also, $WAT repurchased $6MM of common stock related to the vesting of restricted stock units during 1H15 vs. $7MM in 1H14.
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.
