Ahead of Google’s developer’s conference Wednesday the company is talking up “cloud computing.” What is it and should you trade it?
Basically, cloud computing means obtaining computing resources — processing, storage, messaging, databases and so on — from someplace outside your own four walls, and paying only for what you use, writess Michael Fitzgerald of the New York Times.
I think this is another reason why Google is the oxygen of the Internet, adds Piper Jaffray senior research analyst Gene Munster on Fast Money. These applications are designed to make our lives easier. I think they will present Google in a whole new light and as a result I’m bullish on this stock.
Another potential trade is Adobe which is developing a competitive product, he adds.
