Splunk finished the day down only 2.15%, but a presentation at the Value Investors Congress that pitched the company as a short candidate laid the company low early in the day. Splunk is a richly priced company, but it's also a disruptor in the booming Big Data market. In the preceding video, senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker looks at whether investors are right to short Splunk.

To makes sense of this trend and pick out a winner, The Motley Fool has compiled a new report called" The Only Stock You Need to Profit From the NEW Technology Revolution."
