Deal Economy: Jim Cramer's Takeover Targets for 2014

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) is giving Oracle (ORCL) a run for its money, particularly when it comes to the all-important cloud and mobile devices, Cramer said. Facebook (FB) and Yelp (YELP) 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.

Though everyone was chasing salesforce some time ago, Cramer said it's still not too expensive for a Facebook, a Yahoo! (YHOO), or even a Twitter (TWTR).

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.
