In their Q4 2020 investor letter, Bretton Fund highlighted a few stocks and Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ:MSFT) is one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Microsoft’s stock also had a great year, returning 42.4% on increased earnings per share of 30%. The main driver of their growth in recent years is their cloud computing business, and while it did see a bump in demand as office workers went remote, most of the growth is from the continued shift of corporate computing systems to “the cloud.” We think this shift is still in its early stages.”
