A Software Stud on Sale

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Bryan Hinmon and advisor Charly Travers discuss topics across the investing world.

Oracle's $30 billion in sales doesn't make it a lumbering giant -- the company behaves like a scrappy upstart fending off its competition. Bryan and Charly dig into the company and conclude that there are a few reasons Oracle looks like a great buy today in light of its constant battles with other tech bellwethers and cloud solution providers.

The emergence of mobile computing isn't a new story, but there's still plenty of opportunity for savvy investors to cash in on this once-in-a-lifetime trend. We already know many of the largest players well, but some of the best ways to play this shift are still under the radar.
