Earnings Outlook: Salesforce earnings may be subdued ahead of big Dreamforce party

Salesforce.com Inc. is generating plenty of excitement from a wave of acquisitions and is gearing up for its giant annual San Francisco party, so the cloud-software giant’s quarterly earnings report could be a snoozer in comparison.

Salesforce CRM, -0.11% is scheduled to report second-quarter earnings after the market closes on Wednesday. If the company has anything of import to announce, however, it will likely wait until early October, when Dreamforce will again nearly shut down downtown San Francisco with thousands of Salesforce employees and partners.

Chief Executive Marc Benioff could give some interesting insight on his recent buying spree: Salesforce has already bought more companies this year than in all of 2015, including its largest acquisition ever, the $2.8 billion purchase of e-commerce platform provider DemandWare.
