Morgan Stanley said it expects Windows 8 and Metro UI to open up Windows platform to a broader set of developers and device types, and generate new revenue opportunities for Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT).

The bank maintained its overweight rating and $31 price target. It sees 2012 EPS of $2.76 and 2013 EPS of $3.08.

Microsoft has potential upside of 18.1% based on a current price of $27.09 and an average consensus analyst price target of $32.

This is yet another set of financial analysts who are starting to jump on the obvious train.

It’s just common sense based on what we know…
