Cramer: This Company King of Cloud

(Having trouble with the video? Click here!)

If you missed getting a piece of the ChannelAdvisor IPO, don't worry. Cramer has another idea for you.

"If you couldn't score a piece of that deal, why not consider Salesforece.com, the original cloud-based software company," said the Mad Money host.

Shares of the software maker sold off 6% in extended trade after the company issued a forecast that left the Street underwhelmed.

And that's the kind of sell-off that Cramer is always watching for.

If a company has solid business fundamentals, the Mad Money host is often a buyer of weakness. And the latest results suggest fundamentals at Salesforce.com are solid.

After the bell, Salesforce.com posted fiscal first-quarter revenue of $893 million, up 28 percent from the year before. And it said revenue in the current quarter would be in the range of $931 million to $936 million. The company also said demand for its cloud-based business software grew despite the shaky economy.

But it's not just the relatively impressive earnings that Cramer thinks warrant attention.

He also believes in management - another criteria he applies when determining whether to buy a sell-off. "This company and its visionary CEO, Marc Benioff, understand the current tech environment perhaps better than anyone else out there," he said.

In fact, Cramer believes Salesforce.com is nothing less than a best of breed play.

"I consider Salesforce to be the king of the cloud," Cramer said. "It's a game-changing enterprise software play that helps companies build deep relationships with their customers in a world where mobile and social media have transformed the digital landscape."

"I think there's a lot more to the stock than the forecast," said Cramer. "I remain a Salesfore.com bull."
