The five highest performing cloud computing stocks year-to-date on the Cloud Computing Index are Qualys (NASDAQ: QYLS), Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR), Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ:RVBD), Workday (NYSE:WDAY), and VMWare (NYSE:VMW).  A $10K investment in Qualys shares made on January 2th of last year is worth $12,305.00 as of market close Friday, and $10K invested in Workday shares are worth $11,310.00.  IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP share prices are included for comparison.

The following graphic compares how $10,000 invested on January 2nd of this year in the highest performing cloud computing stocks, in addition to IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP are valued today.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
