    8x8 is still a buy

    As they are stating on the call, this whole industry of hosted Cloud Communication is still very young.
    This company and its "comprehensive suite of stuff" is at the right place at the right time to offer their products to anyone and everyone as they go forward.
    White label is going to be big. 8x8 has the services everyone wants to sell. Hosted Business Phone, UCaaS, Web Conferencing, Video Conferencing, IaaS, Virtual Server Hosting, etc.
    This entire market is only 10% Penetrated.
    They have a jump on working up into mid market.
    They have very good partnerships in place.
    I'd still like to understand how their IP sets them apart from the other folks out there. I want to know what their value is.
    I also like that they are dedicated to Profitable Growth. That is important to me. "Not all revenue is the same." They value revenue that is sticky and going to continue to grow vs. just getting the masses.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Cloud service investors are more sensitive to top line growth which 8x8 has proven itself capable of delivering. Also, consider this is a small cap growth company which turned profitable only 3 years ago after it changed its business model. Realizing the effects of this model change took time. The general EPS growth rate is still up and to the right despite a penny miss this quarter which isn't concerning. We've missed by a penny in the recent past yet here we are, breaking 52 week highs.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
