MICROSOFT ALREADY HAS ORDERS FOR TWO MILLION?…

Goldman Sachs analyst Rick Sherlund says he thinks Microsoft Corp has orders for 2m copies of Windows 3.1, twice the number he had forecast for the company’s fiscal fourth quarter ending in June, and therefore expects that the company may report earnings 20 cents a share higher for the quarter than his estimate of 95 cents, although that will depend on how conservative Microsoft is in its accounting; for fiscal 1993, Sherlund expects Windows alone to generate $800m for Microsoft, and Windows applications will contribute two-thirds of the $3,500m in total revenues he sees for next year.
