Microsoft Financial analyst Charles Sizemore predicts that over time, a persistent Microsoft will come to not only thrive but dominate in the mobile computing space, because Apple has no "moats" to prevent customer attrition and its insistence at heavily controlling the ecosystem will drive customers away, while Google's offerings are too "shoddy." It's a bold prediction, but I suppose betting on Microsoft to be persistent and build on its strengths is a safe bet. But will persistence and flexibility be enough?

Analyst Scoring System

I am of the opinion that these "analyst" should have a score card that gets attached to their name whenever they make an announcement/study. Just like they do in professional sports with athletes' stats (at least in the US).

It should be mandatory for people who earn a living making predictions to provide some metrics that allow the reader to gauge their track records.

Well analysts are already a dime a dozen, but the people hiring them don't seem to care about that exchange rate.
