"We believe the company has several attributes that should appeal to investors, which are: great historical long-term top-line growth, expanding market opportunity to help continue that growth, highly rated products, and a large ecosystem of customers and partners," Drexel Hamilton said.
However, free cash flow growth that lags revenue growth leads analysts to remain cautious.

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates SALESFORCE.COM INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate SALESFORCE.COM INC (CRM) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed - some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year and growth in earnings per share. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including disappointing return on equity, weak operating cash flow and generally higher debt management risk."
