    Despite them leading with revenue guidance, this is not disruptive company growth. On a GAAP basis, they LOST 19 cents per share, which is whopping sum given a share count of well over half a billion. The market is not taking it well. Basically the revenue guidance translates to, "we're going to keep spending to grow revenue, but we're never going to turn a profit."

    Ha! Wonder why CFO is leaving? CRM has lost close to half billion last two years and no signs of slowing down, but don't worry they will grow top line and dilute shareholders at the same time! Cash flow is beginning to show signs of cracking.

     

    Reality will catch up one day, unless investors and "professional analysts" continue to not care at all about a lil thing called EPS or what all business are attempting to grow.

    This ones going upppppp. Sorry, market leader and cloud is forecast to be Huge. Upgrades on price targets coming
    I'm delighted to announce that we are raising our fiscal year 2015 revenue guidance by $100 million, to reach $5.3 billion, which is a full year growth rate of 30% at the high end of our range," salesforce.com Chairman and CEO Marc Benioff said. Shouldn't short high flying market leaders in a bull market whether you like it or not, didn't Amazon teach anybody anything over the years?

    There two highlights from a call with Benioff. 1) they are going vertical - it is not however self build verticals but partnering with ISV to build dominance in certain verticals (very much what they did with Veeva it is helping them grow because it is on their platform but they don't have massive R&D which they would have try to do it all alone), 2) Investment fund - Benioff mentioned they are investing in their ISV partners and thus have another return by funding grow of their own ecosystem (this is same what Google or Apple did Salesforce will benefit a lot from his growong ecosystem - that may become - like in case of Apple reason why company will grow strong)
