RightNow (Nasdaq: RNOW), the best little technology company in Montana, today is powering to new all-time highs fueled by excitement about cloud applications and its recent success in garnering new customers and restructuring the company with a new COO.
The stock rose 1.54% today to $27.68, a new all-time high.
Scanning the news, it’s hard to find anything particular that’s driving the stock, unless you think a press release entitled “RightNow Helps Leading Consumer Brands Deliver Positive Customer Experiences and Drive Business Value.” Nah.
I last wrote in detail about RightNow this summer when it was powering up its new applications strategy, which seems to be taking hold quite well. Since then, the company has also announced it recruited telecom veteran Wayne Huyard to be the new COO. The stock has more than doubled since the summer.
Right Now’s riding the wave of a strong technology rally and also some excitement about cloud applications. It could also be an attractive takeover candicate for a larger cloud applications company such as Salesforce (NYSE: CRM).
