••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on Rackspace Hosting Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Rackspace Hosting Inc. - Jun 10, 2013

Rackspace Hosting, Inc. (RAX) is a leading hosting and cloud computing service provider. During the quarter, Rackspace completed the transition of its infrastructure to "Open Stack," an open-source cloud orchestration project initiated by Rackspace and NASA. This transition impacted core business growth, causing Rackspace to miss revenue expectations. We have high regard for the Rackspace management team, but decided to exit our position as we continue to assess Rackspace's competitive positioning in the rapidly evolving cloud computing service provider space. (Gilad Shany)
