NEW YORK (The Deal) -- TheStreet's Founder Jim Cramer gave his predictions for companies that might be likely takeover targets in 2014 at The Deal Economy in New York Thursday.
Salesforce.com (CRM) - Get Report is giving Oracle (ORCL) - Get Report a run for its money, particularly when it comes to the all-important cloud and mobile devices, Cramer said. Facebook (FB) - Get Report and Yelp (YELP) - Get Report use salesforce.com as a platform, as well as other major Internet companies that get what he calls the "Holy Trinity" of social, mobile and the cloud.
Besides salesforce.com, Cramer also likes Yelp as a possible target, as he said the company understands the need for subscription-based revenue as advertising revenues shrink.
The Deal is a business unit of TheStreet.
