Cloud firms, often known as Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), are businesses that provide cloud-based services or applications. These cloud service providers essentially host tools and data centers that enable clients to acquire and use information in a flexible, managed and cost-effective manner.
The pandemic has expedited the transition to the cloud for both large and small businesses. After all, the public cloud provides greater flexibility, access to cutting-edge processors and technology, and a slew of other advantages. However, recent inflationary worries have significantly prompted several major cloud companies to fall. Because cloud stocks are fast-growing and have high values relative to today’s earnings, they are vulnerable to increasing interest rates.
On the other hand, a large market-wide decline generally signifies an opportunity to invest in top industry businesses with leading positions and bright futures. As a result of November’s fall, these three cloud leaders are excellent buys moving into 2022.
Let’s take a look at three popular, well-positioned stocks that the experts consider wise portfolio picks:

Amazon Inc (AMZN)
Believe it or not, Amazon’s (AMZN) stock has done virtually nothing in the last year and a half. Could this extended foundation, however, lead to an enormous spike in 2022? Investors lost faith in AMZN this year because of harsh comparisons to the pandemic-fueled gains of 2020. These worries were, to some extent, justified. Overall growth was disappointing last quarter, with online shop sales up only 3% and third-party vendor income up only 18% as they faced tough comps. Furthermore, supply chain bottlenecks increased shipping and labor expenses.
However, while e-commerce accounts for most of AMZN‘s sales, the cloud platform Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the company’s primary source of profit. Under the hood, AWS accelerated 39%, compared to 37% in the previous quarter and 29% in the prior-year period. Despite AMZN‘s massive investments in expansion, operating margins exceeded 30%. Growth is projected for both EPS and revenue looking forward, and their year-over-year numbers are solid. They show an EPS of $3.89 per share and sales of $138 billion for the current quarter. AMZN’s 12-month price target is 4,000.00, with a high of 5,000.00 and a low of 3,473.00 provided by analysts. The forecast is a 13.57% rise over its previous price. Experts agree strongly on AMZN’s buy rating.

Splunk Inc (SPLK)
Splunk, Inc.(SPLK) is a software development and marketing company. Splunk Cloud, Splunk lite, and Splunk enterprise are among its offerings. It also provides IT operations, security, application analytics, business analytics, and industries solutions. Erik M. Swan, Michael J. Baum, and Robin K. Das formed the firm in October 2003, and it is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
SPLK trades at a low cost as a result of business model changes. The stock is down around 47% from its all-time highs and trades at roughly 6.5 times annual recurring sales. So, with all of this uncertainty, why would anyone purchase SPLK? Mainly because the business’s transfer to the cloud appears to be going swimmingly. Annual recurring revenue (ARR) increased by 37% last quarter, while cloud ARR, which still accounts for a small portion of overall ARR, increased by 75%, accelerating from the previous quarter. SPLK‘s new software bookings were cloud-based 68% of the time, up 54% the previous quarter. It beat the last two quarters’ analysts’ projections for both EPS and revenue, and the forecasts indicate growth on both an annual and quarterly basis. Until SPLK reports again, they show $774 million in sales. The median price goal for SPLK among analysts providing 12-month price estimates is 172.50, with a high of 225.00 and a low of 117.00. The consensus forecast is a 46.20% gain over the previous price of 117.99. The expert consensus is to buy stock in SPLK.
CrowdStrike Holdings Inc (CRWD)
CrowdStrike Holdings (CRWD) is a new-aged cybersecurity company conceived in the cloud. That cloud-first architecture gives CrowdStrike advantages over legacy vendors, as its centralized “Threat Graph” is able to take data from its entire customer set to continuously train the company’s lightweight “Falcon agent” to prevent the latest cyber-attacks. As CRWD gains more customers, the more intelligent its platform becomes.
CRWD increased its client base by 75% last quarter, which bodes well for the future. Subscription revenue increased by 67%, as did annual recurring revenue (ARR), which increased to $1.51 billion. The adjusted gross margin increased by a percentage point to 79%. CRWD‘s free cash flow margin was a whopping 32.4%. It beat analysts’ forecasts for both EPS and Revenue for the last four consecutive fiscal quarters. Currently (until they report again next year), they have an EPS of 20 cents per share and sales of $410.9 million. The forecasts for both annual and quarterly growth have remained positive. CRWD has a consensus price target of 300.00, with a high of 340.00 and a low of 225.00 among analysts providing 12-month price projections. The consensus reflects a 46.85% gain from its current price, and CRWD’s buy rating is very strong.
