Real Money Stock of the Day Oracle (ORCL) - Get Free Report reported earnings after the bell Wednesday, June 20. 

Oracle beat analysts' earnings and revenue expectations for its fiscal fourth quarter, and said first-quarter profit likely would top forecasts.

Adjusted earnings in the fourth quarter were $1.19 a share on revenue of $11.14 billion. Analysts were expecting earnings of $1.07 a share on revenue of $10.93 billion.

The company's cloud services and license support segment accounted for 61% of its revenue, bringing in $6.79 billion in the period, higher than forecasts of $6.76 billion.

But what does Cramer think that Oracle means for the larger Cloud sector?

"Well, it says that we're still early. It says that the migration's going to pace. It says that Oracle's strategy is appealing to some companies, particularly companies that combined and they're trying to figure who to take. There was one slag of Salesforce (CRM) - Get Free Report , very slight mention, one pretty heavy slag of Workday  (WDAY) - Get Free Report ," explained Cramer.
