About the Talkin' Cloud Stocks Index*

We do not offer buy, sell or hold recommendations on these stocks. Rather, we highlight key cloud computing, SaaS, PaaS and IaaS trends using this index coupled with our blogs (Talkin' Cloud, MSPmentor and The VAR Guy).

Generally speaking, we update the index each Friday. We note the week's biggest winners and losers, recent cloud computing developments, and upcoming earnings announcements.

Most of the index members are pure cloud companies. But a few (Amazon.com, Google and Intuit) are transitioning into the cloud space. Each index member is equally weighted. For instance, a 5 percent decline in Google (GOOG) shares would offset a 5 percent gain in VMware (VMW) shares.
