Despite the after-hours price action,’s Pete Najarian says Microsoft had an impressive quarter. Speaking with CNBC’s Scott Wapner on “Closing Bell”, he said:

Growth slowed down just a little bit, still up north of 46%. I like what they have put up, it was a pretty impressive quarter. This is a cloud company and at 27 times, I think it’s still inexpensive and at a position where it’s well worth looking at it again.
