The five highest performing cloud computing stocks year-to-date on the Cloud Computing Index are Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Qualys (NASDAQ: QYLS), CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA), Workday (NYSE:WDAY), and NetSuite (NYSE:N).

A $10K investment in Workday shares made on January 2nd of this year is worth $15,509.00 as of the market close on Friday December 27th, and $10K invested in Amazon shares for the same time period is worth $15,471.00.

Included in the comparison is the annualized gain or loss and total gain or loss of IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP shares for the same time period.  The following graph provides a comparison of the best performing cloud computing stocks as of December 27, 2013:

Specifics on the Cloud Computing Stock Index

I used The Cloud Times 100 as the basis of the index, selecting nineteen companies all of which are publically traded.  The latest edition of the Cloud Computing Index is shown here.  The filter applied to these companies is that 50% or more of their revenues are generated from cloud-based applications, infrastructure and services.
