Top 10 Companies To Invest In 2014
Suddenly, the tech world has gone jealous. Everyone wants to be Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN ) .
Google (NASDAQ: GOOG ) offered the latest proof when it cut prices 4% on Cloud Engine, a low-cost hosting alternative to Amazon Web Services. EMC and VMware (NYSE: VMW ) have also joined the effort with a spinoff called Pivotal, which is due to be formally unveiled before month-end, according to trade magazine eWEEK.
Even Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT ) wants in, having recently cut prices for some on-demand services available through its competing Windows Azure platform. All signs point to a race to the bottom, which is good news for the likes of Netflix, which consumes vast amounts of Internet infrastructure for delivering its services. Amazon may not be so lucky, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova in the following video.
