Make a Killing on This Next Cloud King
BUZ INVESTORS Cloud Stock Today’s stock is a good example of another one of my favorite strategies—investing in “venture capital” stocks. There are the stocks of small, emerging firms that provide solutions to a number of businesses in different industries. These solutions become indispensable to customers just because they address the real pain points and help the customers grow. These venture capital stocks have the potential to multiply many times over as they continue to attract more customers and expand their market share.
The case in point being HubSpot Inc (NYSE:(HUBS), which provides a cloud-based marketing and sales software platform to businesses in industries like financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing. HubSpot’s platform features integrated applications to help businesses attract visitors to their websites, convert visitors into leads, and close leads into customers. In the fast-changing technology landscape where customers are no longer buying the old-fashioned way, it is imperative that businesses transform how they attract, engage, and delight their customers. HubSpot Inc helps businesses in achieving this goal.
As per the latest research report by Gartner, Inc., the worldwide public cloud services market will be almost $250.0 billion, and is likely to grow 18% in 2017. This is because more and more companies are shifting to cloud services to scale their businesses, control their costs, and become more agile.
