Since 2009, the CRM company has had a moderately growing trend, which sometimes overtakes the index, sometimes not. In 2020, the company really managed to significantly raise its capitalization. Growth from minimum values to maximum was more than 250%. Now the company still looks strong. Judging by the technique, level 200 can become a quite good entry, and already having pushed off from it, the company can go to storm its maximums of 280 and higher.
In recent years, the market for cloud solutions for corporations has grown rapidly. Therefore, it is safe to say that although the company does not pay dividends, it is a growth company. The potential value of Salesforce can grow for a long time, along with the development of cloud solutions.
Thus, #CRM is a promising company operating in a new and potentially profitable sector of the global economy. However, do not forget that the company also has serious competitors in the face of Microsoft, Amazon and Oracle.
