Best stocks to invest in
This video takes a quick look at Salesforce.com (CRM) shares ahead of their earnings report. This cloud-focused company has been in the news a lot lately, and it is undoubtedly looking to get back on track and stretch back to 52 week highs following this report.
However, investors should note that CRM shares have very mediocre fundamentals, which include a Zacks Rank #3 (hold) and a ‘C’ grade for its VGM score. So, overall earnings estimates have been mixed, while the company’s poor value metrics (F grade here) are balanced by its strong showing on the growth front (A grade in this area).
Still, investors should note that the company is in the top 40% from an industry rank look, so the overall fundamentals for the segment appear to be relatively strong. But one caveat to this is CRM’s extremely poor history in earnings season, as the company has missed estimates in two of the last four quarters, and it had a six-quarter streak without a beat not too long ago.
