What Oracle's Earnings Mean for Mutual Fund Investors (ORCL)

Shauna O'Brien Dec 18, 2014

Technology company Oracle Corporation (ORCL) released its second quarter financial results after the closing bell on Wednesday. Here’s what the results mean for mutual fund investors.

Inside the Results


The company reported earnings of $2.5 billion, or 56 cents per share, compared to last year’s results of $2.55 billion, or 56 cents per share. Excluding special items, earnings were 69 cents per share, which matched analysts’ EPS estimates.

Revenue came in at $9.6 billion, up from $9.3 billion a year ago. Analysts expected to see revenue of $9.5 billion.

All Eyes on the New Co-CEOs

The attention has been on ORCL’s management, after its former CEO Larry Ellison stepped down in September. So far, the company is off to a good start – reporting promising earnings for the second quarter. Notably, the company’s cloud services were a standout in its earnings release. This service is something that Larry Ellison was previously very pessimistic about. For future reports, investors should pay attention to the performance of the company’s cloud services.
