Should Salesforce Buy Slack?

DavidNov 25, 2020, 6:15 PM

WORK is such a good stock ticker name.

I remember Austin and Richard being shooketh when I told them the ticker name was WORK

DavidNov 25, 2020, 6:43 PM

Well the rumors have been good for the share price

Salesforce also has quite the ticker simple. “CRM Buys Work” may have been a predetermined endgame.

By market cap, Slack is 9% of Salesforce (20.8B / 231B). I think in terms of capturing the attention of the professional world, people spend a lot of time on Slack. This would acquisition would probably make Salesforce more than 9% more valuable.
