February Best- And Worst-Performing Cloud Computing Stocks

The six highest performing cloud computing stocks year-to-date in the Cloud Computing Index are Workday (NYSE:WDAY), Akamai (NASDAQ: AKAM), F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV), Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ:RVBD), Fusion-IO (NYSE: FIO) and  Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR).  A $10K investment in Workday made on January 2nd of this year is worth $13,443 as of market close yesterday.  IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and SAP share prices are included for comparison.

Big Week For Workday

Workday reported FY2014 revenues of $468.9M this week, up 71% year-over-year, with Q4 revenue coming in at $141.9M, an impressive 74% year-over-year increase.  Workday’s ability to penetrate enterprise accounts and win against entrenched competitors is making many investment firms recommend this stock, further accelerating its share price.  You can find their latest financial results here Workday Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2014 Financial Results.

Workday also announced the acquisition of Identified, a company who specializes in using advanced analytics and Big Data to help recruiters find candidates. Josh Bersin wrote an excellent analysis of the acquisition, and you can read it here,  Workday Acquires Identified: A Potential Disruptive Move In Recruiting (And More).

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.

Specifics on the Cloud Computing Stock Index

I used The Cloud Times 100 as the basis of the index, selecting twenty 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

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.
