    CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 8x8, Inc. (NYSE: EGHT), a leading integrated cloud communications platform, today announced it has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide UCaaS Service Providers for Enterprise 2021 Vendor Assessment (Doc # US47452521, February 2021). 8x8 was specifically recognized in the areas of innovation, offering strategy and implementation. 8x8 was also recognized as a Leader in the 2021 IDC MarketScape: Worldwide UCaaS Service Providers for SMB 2021 Vendor Assessment (Doc # US47452421, February 2021).

    “Enterprises around the world have an even greater appreciation for communications technologies that improve their ability to be productive and collaborate, inside and outside the traditional walls of their business,” said Denise Lund, Research Director, WW Telecom and Unified Communications at IDC. “8x8 was recognized as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide UCaaS Service Providers for Enterprise due to its appeal to large organizations with distributed offices and employees. 8x8 should be considered when needing an integrated, flexible platform, including direct routing for Microsoft Teams and contact center options, that is tailorable to different end user personas that exist across the organization.”

    “As global organizations advance digital transformation efforts and shift to the cloud, optimizing communications, collaboration and engagement between employees, partners and customers is a top priority,” said Dejan Deklich, Chief Product Officer at 8x8, Inc. “We are honored to be recognized as an IDC MarketScape Leader in both reports. This recognition highlights our ongoing commitment in delivering an integrated cloud communications and contact center platform that meets the unique needs of organizations, from SMBs to the enterprise, as they enhance employee and customer experience.”

    Guys stop bubbling and watch the market. " Stocks were mixed while commodity prices rallied, as rising Treasury yields and expectations of higher inflation weighed on equity prices."

    I got in last summer at $16... fun...
    Seeing the dips isn't concerning - but I'll try to watch news.

    I was also in SWI - that hack! Luckily I sold it all before the scope of how bad it was hit. Was able to sell on the first day - kept falling below my purchase price after that... broke even.

    This was up there with other "innovation" and tech stocks I have been watching. Some of the "innovations" I've looked at (did some reading of Cathie Wood's approach), what I've seen come about 20+ years as a teacher seeing kids and what they use/like (future consumers): BLNK, BABA, BIDU, AI, CHKP, CLDR, CMCLF, CVLT, CRSP, GLUU (ZNGA was too high imho), GBTC, GSX, NVTA, LIVX, NNOX, NCNO, NKLA (i know - fraud possibly), NIO, PLTR, PYPL (SQ too high imho), QS, RIOT, SIRI, SNAP, TDS, TTM, TME, TSLA, UBER, & WKHS.

    To be clear - I picked most of these up last year after the shutdown and when prices dipped. I'm in for under $400 in many of them - under $1,500 in all but a few. Obviously, some are more 'speculative' than others. Down only in NKLA, PLTR, NVTA, CRSP, AI, and AUTL.

    My thinking is holding the 'speculations' for a couple of years to see if any take off. My guess is some will take off - and some will go so far as to fold completely...

    I also picked up some 'blue-chips' or bigger 'traditional' companies paying dividends I saw at a 'discount' (again, imho): BTI, BAM, CSCO, KO, CW, DOW, LUV, JNJ, KMB, KHC, OXY, SYY...

    8x8 inc. could be bought out by ZOOM. makes perfect sense and to compete with Ring central long term.
    Dave Sipes as CEO was COO at Ring central until recently. It will make ZOOM the biggest communication company not just a video conferencing company. I would expect a buyout at 60-90 dollar price.

    ZOOM is struggling now. They have to do something fast before their stock price goes down and their buying power for other companies in the market.

    Looks like the whole sector is getting hammered. RNG, ZM, FIVN.

    Return of social/travel normalcy?

    I can see ZM getting beaten down as a one trick pony but not the whole cloud communications sector.

    8x8 should make a secondary offering to take advantage of this high share price to raise cash before the red market bring it back to below $20.
