Salesforce.com has not had the easiest of times recently, although the cloud trailblazer is still worth a look over the coming 12 months.The San Francisco-based firm has enjoyed great success helping companies manage their customer relationships via the Internet. Its stock, however, hit a speed bump in the aftermath of its recent third-quarter results. Investors balked at the company's weaker-than-expected billings growth, pushing the shares to a new 52-week low.
