$TIF's GM increased 0.7 percentage point in 3Q15, benefiting from favorable product input costs offset by a shift in sales mix toward higher-priced, lower-margin products as well an increase in the wholesale sale of diamonds. In addition, the benefit from retail price increases was partly offset by the negative effect from the strong U.S. dollar.
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.
