Company Report

Salesforce’s Unmatched Portfolio Helps Drive a Wide Moat

We believe Salesforce represents one of best long-term investment opportunities in software, particularly as the company should provide investors with a nice balance between revenue growth and improving profitability. Even as revenue growth has decelerated over time, we believe a new focus on margin expansion, share buybacks, and dividends should continue to compound strong earnings growth for years to come.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Salesforce.com dominates the SFA space but still only controls 30% in a highly fragmented market that continues to grow double digits each year, suggesting there is still room to run.

Bears

As the company grows larger, it may be increasingly difficult for Salesforce to grow faster than its various end markets.
