Yesterday salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM) reported Q3 earnings and revenue that topped estimates.

Commenting on the quarter, analyst Michael Huang of Needham and Company said, "Salesforce delivered a solid bookings quarter, which could mitigate some skeptic concerns around the direction of underlying trends."

Unlike most other tech bellwethers, Haung pointed out that salesforce has not experienced a meaningful deterioration of sales or close rates.

"While 31% bookings growth may not have been blockbuster spectacular, our sense is that this level of growth is solid enough (and encouraging) considering macro uncertainty, European exposure, FX headwinds, and a generally weakening enterprise IT spending,” added Haung.

He thinks salesforce is the highest quality and best scaled SaaS name.

Needham & Company has a Buy rating on salesforce.com with a price target of $180.00.
