Best- And Worst-Performing Cloud Computing Stocks Feb. 14 to Feb. 21 And Year-to-Date

The five highest performing cloud computing stocks year-to-date in the Cloud Computing Index are Akamai (NASDAQ: AKAM),  Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR), F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV), Workday (NYSE:WDAY), Fusion-IO (NYSE: FIO) and  Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ:RVBD).  $10,000 invested in Akamai on January 2nd of this year is worth $13,267 as of market close yesterday (2/21/14).

IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP share prices are included for comparison.

Workday’s (NYSE:WDAY) share price is up 20.79% year-to-date, delivering $12,284 on a $10K investment on January 2nd.  Salesforce (NYSE:CRM) is up 15.22%, delivering a return of $11,591 on $10K invested in the same time period.   NetSuite (NYSE:N) is up 12.18% for the year, delivering $11,339 on $10K invested. Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) is up 9.19% year-to-date, delivering $10,841 invested on $10K on January 2nd.

Rapid time-to-market with new apps,  the ability to accelerate sales cycles with a broad product and services mix, and rapidly growing customer bases are just a few of the many catalysts driving the growth of enterprise cloud computing companies in the index.

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.
