Shares of Qlik Technologies (NASDAQ: QLIK  ) are on the move. The company, which made a name for itself delivering business intelligence and analytics to anyone, anywhere via mobile devices, popped 13% after reporting strong revenue gains and upbeat guidance.

Importantly, the BI sector as a whole isn't seeing gains. MicroStrategy (NASDAQ: MSTR  ) fell as much as Qlik gained on a 6% decline in revenues in the most recent quarter. Qlik, by contrast, reported a 22% rise in revenue and told analysts to expect another 20% or better bump in the quarter.

Qlik is also diversifying. The company purchased Sweden's NComVA AB for an undisclosed sum in order to improve how its core product, QlikView, helps customers visualize data. Still, with CAPS investors giving the stock only three out of a possible five stars, there's wide debate over whether this volatile BI provider really is among the best stocks to invest in now.

    I got "heavily" (for me) into QLIK awhile ago and am in the stock, PUTs and CALLs. Also am enjoying the current up status which offsets a couple poor performers of this week (tech).

    I plan to increase my QLIK position if Iron Man 3 is not the expected blockbuster for DIS and IMAX I and others expect. I saw it in 3D IMAX with the wife for $30 as seniors and she did not enjoy it. So my expanded QLIK Vs IMAX is in Limbo.
