7 Leading Software and Cloud Stocks to Buy

While the pandemic meant a setback for a number of sectors, digitalization grew apace — increasing the need for software and cloud services. In turn, the demand for cloud computing industry should grow further as more businesses adapt to work-from-home. And thus, software and cloud stocks should be hot options for investors.

Overall, shares of many software and cloud companies have seen significant returns in the past year. For instance, so far in 2021, the Dow Jones US Software Index is up 27% and hit an all-time high in recent days. And the ISE Cloud Computing Index has returned 10% year-to-date (YTD).

Additionally, according to research group Gartner, “Worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is forecast to grow 23.1% in 2021 to total $332.3 billion, up from $270 billion in 2020.” The same study forecasts the sector to reach $397.5 billion in 2022. Therefore, in this article, I will introduce seven leading software and cloud stocks to buy in the coming months.

Even before the pandemic-forced digitalization, we were already benefitting from the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0 or 4IR, defined as “the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies, including cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing and creating the smart factory.”

Now, as we move on to Industry 5.0, the focus will shift to collaboration and interaction between humans and machines. With that information, the following seven software and cloud stocks deserve your  attention in the coming weeks:

Adobe (NASDAQ:ADBE) Cerence (NASDAQ:CRNC) Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX) Global X Cloud Computing ETF (NASDAQ:CLOU) Palantir Technologies (NYSE:PLTR) Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) SPDR S&P Software & Services ETF (NYSEARCA:XSW)

Now, let’s dive in and take a closer look at each one.

Cloud Stocks to Buy: Adobe (ADBE)

52-Week Range: $420.78 – $642.55

Let’s start with a global diversified software company, Adobe. The San Jose, California-based group offers digital marketing and advertising software and services to students, creative artists, small businesses, government agencies, as well as many of the largest global brands worldwide. Founded in 1982, Adobe has more than 23,000 employees worldwide today.

According to the second quarter financial results announced in mid-June, revenue grew 23% year-over-year (YOY) to $3.84 billion. Non-GAAP net income came in at $1.46 billion, up 22.7% YOY. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $3.03 on a non-GAAP basis, an increase of 23.7%. Cash flows from operations were a record $1.99 billion, up 67.9% compared to the previous-year quarter. Adobe ended the quarter with $4.25 billion in cash and equivalents.

On the results, CEO Shantanu Narayen cited, “Our innovative product roadmap and unparalleled leadership in creativity, digital documents and customer experience management position us for continued success in 2021 and beyond.” He added that “the large market opportunity and momentum we are seeing across our creative, document and customer experience management businesses position us well to deliver another record year.”

Adobe has returned over 27.5% YTD, and hit a record high in recent days. The shares trade at 44.44 times consensus forward earnings and 21.04 times current sales. Despite the recent run-up in price, the software giant still offers growth potential and hence potentially high investment returns. Investors should keep the stock on radar to buy the dips.

Cerence (CRNC)

52-Week Range: $45.86 – $139

Burlington, Massachusetts-based Cerence is an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered assistant provider for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs). Its services also include software platforms for building automotive virtual assistants.

Cerence reported strong third quarter financial results on Aug. 9. Revenue of $96.8 million implied a growth of 28.7% YOY. Non-GAAP net income was $26.1 million, increased 110% compared to prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP diluted EPS stood at 62 cents, up 93.75% YOY. Free cash flow ended the quarter at $21.2 million compared to $13.4 million a year ago.

CEO Sanjay Dhawan commented, “Enhancing our future growth opportunities are the strategic collaborations we announced in the quarter with Sirius XM, Visteon and Harman. In the case of Visteon, the collaboration extends into the two-wheeler market, a new adjacent market in which we are making steady progress.”

According to Statista metrics, autonomous vehicles should comprise 12% of car registrations by 2030. Thus, Cerence has the potential to be a winner in the secular growth in CAVs market.

In early June, Japan-based Pioneer announced a strategic partnership with CRNC to develop scalable AI-powered products and services that enhance mobility experiences for drivers and passengers globally.

CRNC stock is up more than 8% YTD. The company’s forward price-earnings (P/E) and price-sales (P/S) ratios are 39.22 and 11.39, respectively. Given the potential for secular growth, interested investors should keep the shares on their radar screen with a view to buy for long-term portfolios.

Cloud Stocks to Buy: Dropbox (DBX)

52-Week Range: $17.66 – $33

San Francisco, California-based Dropbox provides online file storage and sharing services. The company was founded in 2007 and currently operates in 180 countries. It also has more than 700 million registered users.

Dropbox released Q2 financial results on Aug. 5. Total revenue came in at $530.6 million, up 13.5% from the same period previous year. Non-GAAP net income was $160.5 million, an increase of 72.2%. Non-GAAP diluted EPS was 40 cents, up 81.8% YOY. Cash and short-term investments ended the quarter at $1.944 billion. Free cash flow was $216 million compared to $119.8 million a year ago.

On the results, CEO Drew Houston remarked, “We’re proud of our execution this quarter as we delivered even more value to our customers and shareholders and are excited about the opportunity ahead to build next-generation tools to support the new world of distributed work.”

Moreover, regular InvestorPlace.com readers might remember that in March, Dropbox acquired DocSend. This is a secure document sharing and analytics company with more than 17,000 customers. The transaction was priced at $165 million.

DBX stock hit as high as $33 after the release of Q3 results. So far this year, the shares have surged around 36%. The company’s consensus forward P/E and P/S ratios stand at 24.94 and 6.16, respectively. Accelerated digital transformation should continue to increase the demand for cloud storage platforms. And given the company’s solid position and growth strategy, investors should consider buying into the declines.

52-Week Range: $21.87 – $30.42

CLOU has returned around 28% in the last 52 weeks and 3.3% YTD. Potential investors who seek exposure to cloud names could find value below $28.

On the earnings call Chief Operating Officer Shyam Sankar said, “Cutting-edge product and continued efficiencies in distribution drove exceptionally strong year-over-year Q2 results,” and added, “The number of commercial customers grew 32% over last quarter. We closed 62 deals of $1 million or more, 30 of which were for $5 million or more and 21 were for $10 million or more.”

Sankar also introduced the “Meta-Constellation” software that integrates with existing satellites building a more efficient AI-enabled decision chain. Looking forward, the company raised its full-year guidance for adjusted free cash flow to more than $300 million, up from more than $150 million.

Though PLTR shares surged more than 10% after the release of Q2 results, they are currently trading at around $24, shy of the record highs seen in late January. So far this year, PLTR stock is up 2.6% and trades at 163.93 times forward earnings and 36.86 times current sales. Buy-and-hold investors could consider investing around current levels.

Shopify has proven to be a winner in recent years, and management still invests for growth despite the deceleration in pandemic-fueled gains. SHOP stock trades at 232.56 times forward earnings and 48.47 times current sales. So far this year, the shares have returned 29.5%. Given the overstretched valuation levels, potential investors could consider investing towards $1400.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) is leading a busy day of earnings reports on Tuesday. Shares are off 0.4% after the firm despite reporting a 40% year-over-year jump in profits and stronger-than-expected revenue. The firm reported earnings per share (EPS) of $5.98 on top of $9.40 billion in revenue. The Wall Street giant was expected to report EPS of $4.67 on top of $8.71 billion in revenue. The investment bank’s first six months of 2018 were its strongest in nine years. The stock slipped after the company announced that president David Solomon will be replacing CEO Lloyd Blankfein when he steps down from his role. Blankfein has been CEO for 12 years. It’s fair to say that Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) went to the dogs on Monday. The company has extended its Prime Day promotion through 3 a.m. on Wednesday. The announcement came after the firm suffered significant outages during the start of the event on Monday afternoon. Rather than get access to deals, many customers were met with pictures of dogs, the firm’s standard error page. Finally, pay close attention to events on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee will question leaders of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), and Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) about how they store and filter user content. Last year, the Senate and House of Representatives slammed the companies for their roles in and responses to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Top Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019

Can I deduct the cost of styling photos for my Instagram account?

Can I deduct moving expenses for my dog?

Can I deduct the cost of covering up a tattoo to keep my job?

I get lots of questions like the ones above from taxpayers throughout the year. My answer is usually, “It depends.” That’s because facts and circumstances matter: tax deductibility may hinge on such specifics as what you do for a living, where you live, and whether you have a diagnosed medical condition.

For the record, my answers to these specific questions:

I don’t know, are you Beyoncé?

Your dog is considered property so you can deduct those costs so long as you otherwise meet the criteria for moving expenses.

No, it’s considered a personal expense, but do it anyway if you need to keep your job. Or switch jobs.

    Meanwhile, ExxonMobil’s XTO subsidiary agreed to dedicate natural gas produced from two counties in New Mexico to Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE:SMLP) last July. Summit is currently investing $110 million in building out a natural gas gathering and processing system to serve new wells in that area, which should be in service this month. In addition, Summit has proposed a long-haul pipeline to move gas out of the region, which would cost up to $450 million and could help support Exxon’s growing gas output from the area.

    Another possible opportunity for Kinder Morgan is partnering with other companies that need funding for projects they’re developing in the region. One example is Summit Midstream Partners’ (NYSE:SMLP) proposed Double E Pipeline project. Summit envisions it moving upwards of 1.0 BCF/D of gas from the Permian to a hub in Texas. The $400 million to $450 million project is too large for Summit to finance on its own, which is why it’s evaluating alternatives, including looking for financial partners. Meanwhile, Targa Resources recently secured another $500 million of Permian expansion projects, and now expects to invest more than $2.4 billion into the Basin over the next few years. While the company has secured funding for a large portion of that, it still needs more, and it could choose to bring on a partner like Kinder Morgan to provide it.

Top Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019: Seaspan Corporation(SSW)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Rental rates aren’t the only thing gaining momentum. Several companies are demonstrably stronger today, including containership leader Seaspan (NYSE:SSW). The investor favorite has made moves to strengthen its long-term prospects just in time to capitalize on rebounding global demand for shipping vessels of nearly every size. Throw in the purchase of a Chinese joint venture, which injected youthful vessels and new contracts into the business, and a $500 million investment from a major shareholder, and it’s easy to see why shares are up 80% in the last year alone.

  • [By ]

    Seaspan (SSW) : “No, this one has moved up too much.”

    Criticare Systems Inc (CMD) : “This stock has moved so much. I like Thermo Fisher Scientific (TMO) a little better.”

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    That helps to explain why shares of Seaspan Corporation (NYSE:SSW) and Diana Shipping (NYSE:DSX) are up 36% and 28%, respectively, since the beginning of April. Both performances easily beat the 5% return of the S&P 500 in that span. However, even the healthy gains made recently don’t come close to erasing the losses accumulated in recent years, as both shipping leaders are down over 34% in the last three-year period.
