Oracle stock up on impressive cloud revenue

ORCL also reported a whopping $12.3 billion in free cash flow for the past twelve months. Safra Catz – the chief executive of Oracle Inc. said in a press release today:

We expect to continue receiving large contracts reserving cloud infrastructure capacity because the demand for our Gen2 AI infrastructure substantially exceeds supply.
