Zacks‘ analyst wrote, “Salesforce’s adjusted loss per share in second-quarter fiscal 2015 was wider than the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Revenues increased on a year-over-year basis, primarily due to growth across all it business segments. The company provided positive third-quarter revenue guidance and raised fiscal 2015 guidance as well. We consider the rapid adoption of Salesforce1 Customer Platform to be a positive for the company. Overall, the company’s diverse cloud offerings and strong spending on digital marketing remain catalysts. Although the company is growing reasonably in the cloud market, growth prospects have been rationalized to a considerable extent due to intensifying competition. Currency fluctuations and an increase in investments for international expansions and data centers could impact near-term results. Thus, we reiterate our Neutral recommendation on the stock.”
