The technical chart is exceptional. It has connectivity with client needs and provides a critical advantage. They have scale and can command a premium valuation to its competitors. They are constantly making their systems better. It has recurring revenue, which makes is superior to other tech holdings like the semi-conductor space. He has exited tech holdings in the portfolio, because the valuations have become too expensive compared to other sectors. He would take profit here.

Salesforce compared to Facebook and Google? Software company, trades at a high multiple, which is holding her back from buying. It’s more a momentum stock, any stumble and it will pull back. Not similar to Facebook or Google, which are advertising plays on the internet. Great company. Wait for pullback.

They just reported great earnings numbers. They sell application software (which makes up over 25% of his portfolio), which is like Facebook where the Cloud plays a big role and eventually leads to subscription revenue. Their guidance is calling for 25% growth. He has a target buy price of $155. Trading at 7.2 times forward revenue, it is a little expensive.

Valuation is too high. Watch and buy it during a dip. Forward PE is 60x.

Looks decent. Likes the upward trend. Earnings momentum and a strong relative performance compared to most other stocks. Good fundamentals. If it hits $128 in the fall it could mean a break-out. The recent dip saw a lot of buying from panic selling, which is a positive sign. It has since seen a good turnaround. Apply a 100-day moving average as your stop. Support level is strong at $103.

Users like their services. Doing $2.6 billion in Cloud and support revenue. Their subscription model is really driving this. There's debate about them reaching saturation. They just bought RealSoft. which he was going to buy. Salesforce's ability to work with other apps will lead them to continue to grow. It's on his radar.

This company tracks customer contacts. It is at or near all-time highs and is at 62 times earnings. He likes it is going to the cloud, but they will require 20% compound annual sales growth to defend it and he does not think they are there.

In the market we are in, there are several key multiyear themes at play. In a bull market, you tend to have a number of industries that have some structural shift taking place that benefit certain industries for a long period of time. This company is right in the middle of one of them. It is Cloud-based software. A really unique area, because when you are getting subscribers and new customers, recurring revenue just keeps on going. Expensive at about 80X this year’s earnings. However, it is growing at 30% a year and estimates are constantly being revised higher. He likes the software as a service and the Cloud-based software sector. The best companies always trade at high valuations.

A company he has not recommended because it is very expensive with a very high beta, and his clients can’t stomach that kind of risk. Prefers cheaper names in this sector.

He doesn’t love this one. As a successful software business, it has gotten very high valuations. As a value investor, he doesn’t see why he would pay 40 or 50 times earnings. Prefers something like Google (GOOGL-Q) over this.

A great company. The stock hasn’t gone up a lot, and is still trading at a very high valuation level. You are paying for a lot of good things to happen. Today, when there are so many good companies that are still growing and have pretty powerful brands, they are more attractive from a valuation standpoint, and those are the things that he is looking at. You are taking more risk in a name like this that is trading at a 70X earnings multiple.

(A Top Pick March 23/15. Up 6.86%.) Still thinks this is an excellent company and he toyed with the idea of buying more. However, at the beginning of the year everything got thrown out with the bathwater. A very high valuation stock. Thinks the market is starting to award deep value over growth. Currently he still has a very small holding.
