Analysts Reel In PC Expectations After Windows 10 Launch

By Jennifer BootonMarketWatch Pulse

Morgan Stanley lowered its calendar-year 2015 estimates on PC growth on Friday, citing lower expectations for Microsoft Corp.'s Windows 10. Expectations for the software, launched late last month, are lower now than they were three months ago, said analyst Katy Huberty. She's now calling for a 10% year-over-year decline in PC sales, from expectations of a 6% decline previously. Morgan Stanley also said that second-quarter shipments came in slightly below expectations due to an 8% year-over-year decline in notebooks and 18% drop in desktops.
