MongoDB Stock: More Metrics Needed for Investors

Wherever there are competing software solutions, you’ll find loyal tribes. Engineers are technically competent, so they’ll usually articulate their arguments in a convincing matter.

What’s a Fair Valuation for Snowflake Stock?

Warren Buffet once said, “it’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.” This suggests that quality companies don’t often trade at a discount.

Pure Storage Stock: A Big Data Pure Play

When Mr. Musk says there’s a one in a million chance we’re not in a simulation, it’s worth pondering the idea a bit.

There are references to artificial intelligence and automation technologies, but cheap or crowdsourced labor isn’t exactly what […]

IQVIA: A Leading Digital Healthcare Stock

Data is the new oil. It’s a phrase that regular readers will recognize, but we can’t take credit for coining it. The credit actually goes to a British data scientist named Clive Humby. Of course, it took a marketing guy to point out that raw oil must be turned into a product like gas or […]
