Confident Investor comments: At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in Equinix Inc as long as the price is correct. Most of the fundamentals of this company are good but there are some concerns mainly due to price volatility. However, Equinix is a good play for cloud strategy as well as international exposure in the IT space. I will leave the company on my Watch List, even though it is currently ranked as a Fair company.
