$ES estimates that it can grow EPS by 5-7% annually over the 2015-2019 forecast period. This compares with the company's previous growth rate of 6-8% for the 2014-2018 period. Nearly all of that change is due to the 5-year extension of bonus depreciation for tax purposes recently passed by Congress.
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.
