Best ETFs of 2020: The Global X Cloud Computing Fund Should Be a Winner – Investorplace.com

This article is a part of InvestorPlace.coms Best ETFs for 2020 contest. Dana Blankenhorns choice for the contest is the Global X Cloud Computing Fund (NASDAQ:CLOU).

Since the start of 2020, the Global X Cloud Computing Fund (NASDAQ:CLOU) is down by 9%.

In a market infected with fear thanks to the coronavirus from China, that counts as a win.

CLOU had been outperforming the S&P 500 during January and February. The divergence has sharpened since things got serious on Feb. 19. Since then, CLOU is down 18%, but the S&P is down 27%.

CLOU is designed to track the INDXX USA Cloud Computing Index. This index encompasses companies that are actively involved in the cloud computing industry. Most are applications sold as services.

The largest holding of CLOU is Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), an e-commerce application that was one of the markets best performers in 2018 and 2019. Over the last three years it rose from less than $70 per share to a recent high of almost $600 before falling back to its present level of $415.

Other big application providers in the index are Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), Salesforce(NYSE:CRM) and Twilio (NYSE:TWLO), the latter of which embeds voice, video and text into other applications.

Many CLOU components provide services for other cloud companies. An example is Zscaler (NASDAQ:ZS), a cloud security company whose shares are up 23% so far in 2020. Zscaler has been warning about risks in the shadow IoT world, the laptops and phones used by workers at home.

Not everything CLOU touches has turned to gold. Among the losers so far are Paycom Software (NYSE:PAYC), which provides cloud-based human resources applications. Paycom has been hit hard as companies have moved to lay off workers, and the shares are down 20% so far in 2020.

CLOU doesnt just feature cloud application providers.

Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ:AKAM), originally created as a Content Delivery Network in 1998, now offers a host of security and connectivity solutions for carriers. Its software works inside the network, invisible to most users. Its customers include service providers as well as enterprises. Akamai shares are up nearly 3% so far this year.

Another big holding is Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR), a real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns data centers. These are the buildings, filled with computers and networking gear, through which enterprises connect with the cloud and clouds connect to each other. REITs are organized to build with debt and pay income back to shareholders. DLRs dividend of $4.48 per share last year yielded 3.34%. Since the start of the year, DLR shares are up 13%.

Proofpoint (NASDAQ:PFPT) focuses on protecting e-mail, both the messages themselves and the mailboxes they rest in. This has become the most expensive problem in all of cybercrime, the company says. Since the start of 2020, however, Proofpoint shares are down by 14%, because it has been delaying profits in favor of growth. Thats an approach that is in bad taste right now.

I had no idea a global pandemic was around the corner when I chose to recommend CLOU late last year.

I was just looking to win the contest. It seemed to me that remote work, and cloud applications, were fated to grow fast. Most CLOU holdings are growth companies, not dividend payers, and that aggressive approach will usually win.

As I wrote at the time, To win a contest you must be bold. Even by the end of 2019, the transition to the cloud was only 20% complete, according to International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM).

That puts cloud applications at the center of their growth curve. Such companies have ample pricing power, limited competition and innovative solutions to offer. The way to growth is always on the leading edge.

So, it seems, is the way to safety in a panic.

4 Ways the Coronavirus Pandemic Could Impact IBM – Motley Fool

The coronavirus outbreak represents a serious threat for industries such as restaurants and airlines sincetheir activities are greatly reduced, if not shut down. In contrast,the consequences of social distancing to fight against the spread of the virus should boost other businesses that offer remote working and communications capabilities -- the video communication specialist Zoom Communications and the tech company Citrix Systems come to mind.

But for IBM (NYSE:IBM), the situation is more complex because of its diversified activities and ongoing transformation. Here are four ways the coronavirus pandemic could impact the 109-year-old tech giant.

From a high-level perspective, IBM's business consists of selling computing infrastructure and services to enterprises. As such, it's exposed to the information technology (IT) global spending that should slow down this year.Because of the coronavirus outbreak, the research company IDC estimates IT spending could increase by only 1% in 2020, down from 4% previously.

But the consequences for IBM could be much more pronounced. With its footprint across many industries in 175 countries, the company also depends on the global economy. Given the wide range of economic forecasts for this year, predictions remain hazardous. But the downside potential seems inevitable. For instance, Reutersreported thatMorgan Stanley analysts expected global growth to plunge to global financial crisis lows in 2020.

Some of IBM's segments, such as cybersecurity and cloud, should benefit from the social distancing measures that change the way enterprises work. But given the potential impact of the coronavirus on the worldwide economy, IBM's global business may not thrive in this environment.

Management hasn't updated its guidance yet, but the first-quarter earnings call on April 20 should provide a precious update about IBM's short-term outlook.

Image source: Getty Images.

Over the last several years, IBM has been struggling with diminishing revenue. Because of some asset divestiture and the decline of some of its legacy businesses that deal with on-premises computing infrastructures, revenue dropped from $81.7 billion in 2015 to $77.1 billion in 2019. But the company has been investing in growth areas such as blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), and cloud computing to offset this decline.

Cloud technology has become a key element of IBM's portfolio.During the last quarter, cloud represented 31.2% of total revenue, up from 4% in 2013, boosted by the acquisition of Red Hat in July 2019.

The immediate impact of the coronavirus on IBM's cloud business remains uncertain. Social distancing means that at least one-third of the worldwide population will stay home, which should increase the consumption of cloud-based services. But the potential slowdown of the global economy could also reduce the demand for IBM's solutions in this area.

Beyond these short-term uncertainties, working from home may become a secular trend. Cloud computing provides the infrastructure to support that shift, which should boost the company's cloud business after the coronavirus situation settles.

Since IBM spent $34.8 billion in cash to acquire Red Hat, its net debt -- total debt minus cash and equivalents -- increased in a meaningful way, from $33.6 billion at the end of 2018 to $53.9 billion at the end of last year.As a result, the rating agency Moody'shas downgraded IBM's long-term debt rating from A1 to A2, but that still corresponds to a solid investment grade. In addition, management had expressed its goal of keeping a strong credit ratingby reducing the debt load, thanks to the company's strongfree cash flow, which reached$11.9 billionlast year.

But that was before thecoronavirus outbreak.However, that level of free cash flow represents a comfortable safety net to keep on reducing the net debt -- at a slower pace, though -- even if a recession materializes.

IBM has been paying a dividend for 104 consecutive years. It's also on the way to becoming a Dividend Aristocratif it increases its dividend this year, as planned before the coronavirus outbreak.

The free cash flow of $11.9 billion more than covered the $5.7 billion of dividends it paid in 2019. And in January, management said that free cash flow would increase this year, which bodes well for sustaining the dividend.

However, shareholders should moderate their expectations. Before the pandemic, I had argued a strong dividend increase was unlikelybecause of the focus on reducing the company's debt load. And depending on the severity of the crisis and its impact on IBM's free cash flow, not increasing -- or cutting -- the dividend has become a possibility. Such a decision may disappoint income-oriented investors, which could have a negative impact on IBM's stock price.

What Pentagon cloud contract means to Amazon and Microsoft – Gigabit Magazine – Technology News, Magazine and Website

Back in October of 2019, the Pentagon announced the awarding of the $10bn, multi-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to Microsoft.

Amazon subsequently appealed against the decision to give the contract to Microsoft, aggrieved by what it felt was political interference stemming from the enmity between Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and President Donald Trump.

The contract is for a project known as the Joint Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) initiative, which is intended to modernise legacy data and communications systems used by the US military - the implementation of which may lead to other government departments joining in the uptake. In its initial awarding of the contract, the contract was described as being for providing enterprise level, commercial Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to support Department of Defense business and mission operations.

SEE ALSO:

In a press release at the time, the Department of Defense said: This continues our strategy of a multi-vendor, multi-cloud environment as the departments needs are diverse and cannot be met by any single supplier. This contract will address critical and urgent unmet warfighter requirements for modern cloud infrastructure at all three classification levels delivered out to the tactical edge.

In the last few weeks, the Department has said it is to reconsider its decision, in light of the court case and what it said were technical challenges presented by AWS. Microsoft reportedly welcomed the opportunity to make progress, asserting that it still believed its solution was technologically superior.

The government subsequently requested 120 days to reassess. What the outcome of that reassessment will be is uncertain, especially considering the unprecedented economic climate caused by the coronavirus pandemic. But a Pentagon spokesman recently ruled out talk that the contract could be split between the two technology giants.

Invest In The Software Of Social Distancing – Forbes

Social distancing is pushing thousands of enterprise employees out of office towers and into makeshift home offices. Its a big trend that may last several quarters as the battle to contain the COVID-19 pandemic goes on.

New York, NY - MARCH 27: A woman walks to her train in Grand Central Terminal as New York City ... [+] attempts to slow down the spread of coronavirus through social distancing on March 27, 2020. New York has been hit hard by the restrictions in response to the outbreak of COVID-19. (Photo by John Lamparski/Getty Images)

Cisco Systems is the original networking business. Its telecommunications equipment connects devices in every part of the enterprise. And its security systems keep everything safe.

I generally preferred nimbler companies to Cisco in the past. I was willing to trade established relationships for revenue growth and innovation because the market was looking for what comes next.

Now, however, we are in a different era.

Against the current backdrop of unparalleled uncertainty, chief technology officers are likely to go with the legacy solutions they know and understand well.

Cisco is the quintessential legacy business. It makes dependable hardware that connects smartphones, computers, servers and Internet of Things devices in the field. And its scalable suite of software tools is easy to set up and easier to use.

For the first time since 2009, the San Jose, Calif. pioneer is in the right place at the right time, ready to flex without worry of pesky disruptors nipping at its heels.

Even before the coronavirus, companies were eager to shove their workers out of the office. Half of all information technology officers have made the move, according to a Bureau of Labor Statisticsreleaselast September. The transition for non-techies accelerated with cloud computing and client software likeSlack (WORK),Microsoft (MSFT)Teams and nowZoom Video (ZM), the popular teleconferencing applicationIve spoken about recently.

COVID-19 may mean everyone must work remote, accelerating this trend. This will change the landscape of American businesses. And itll change the prospects of companies who create the software and hardware that make telecommuting possible.
