Investors are increasingly losing interest on Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL)’s shares. This has been in vogue due to talks abound that ORCL may opt to sell off its hardware unit to Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL). It also acquired digital marketing service provider called Datalogix with the object of aptly tracking, publicizing and reach out contents to a wide range of customer base, thus attaining conclusive results.

Moorehead’s Concern

Patrick Moorhead had clearly pointed previously that the company were at better statistics in terms of sales and profits in the software services side, while savoring losses on the hardware segment. Meanwhile, the Q2 2015 results have been moderate, with growth staggering at mere single digit numbers.

Datalogix, A Great Buy

Datalogix is indeed a great buy for Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL). With big data being the order of the day, and a whole list of data being shared on the cloud, internet marketing would be made easy with Datalogix. The premise is suitable for growth immeasurable as 93% hanker after the internet and the web for purchases or social living.

Revenues In Single Digits

Moreover, net revenues were up by 3%, revenues on cloud based services were up by 5%, SaaS, PaaS and IaaS accounted for an increase in revenues by 45%. On a constant currency figurative basis, net growth estimated year over year is at around 5%.

Investments On The Fall

Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) is at a mere range of 5-10% from the yearly high, yet it floundered as investors considered that this is seemingly not the apt time to invest in numbers. With ORCL yet to script a success story with Datalogix, to the fore, and profits have been meager and not that commendable, the options to let the hardware section go off is leading to lowering in investments, thus causing floundering share price and reducing buzz about the shares.

However, as an investor, one needs to wait until the price falls furthermore; once below the anticipated margin, investors can start investing on the shares, since the scenario is going to better in the imminent days.
