SalesForce.com Summary Fiscal Q4 (GAAP) Revenues continue increasing as return on assets decrease. Cash flow per share is a record $1.18, which is encouraging. The most recent quarter was unimpressive but future quarters should improve. No matter, the CRM stock price will most likely continue upwards defying the current and past questionable financial performance. CRM trades at a 200+ price/earnings ratio and fundamentals have not been a hindrance to this high flying stock. For a technology sector stock, CRM continues significantly underperforming. Perhaps these are the normal fundamentals inherent in a cloud computing provider. The stock price is priced for a stellar future performance that does not appear to be on the horizon.
