MarketWatch First Take: Oracle cloud growth slows, and — Surprise! — it stops giving cloud numbers

After a few quarters of disappointing cloud revenue growth, Oracle Corp. on Tuesday surprisingly stopped breaking out its much touted cloud business.

The move should lead some investors to fear Oracle ORCL, -0.54% is obfuscating the performance of its once-hot growth business, after loud concerns about disappointing cloud growth. After an initial pop in after-hours trading on better-than-expected fiscal fourth-quarter results, shares of Oracle fell nearly 4% to about $44.55 Tuesday afternoon. That decline could continue a slide that has seen Oracle decline 2.1% this year, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -1.15%after Tuesday’s tumble, is up 1.1%.
