Also fat, gross-margined but German (and I love the whole continent right now) with high quality and moderate growth at a reasonable price is enterprise software giant SAP SE

As this cycle lengthens and capital expenditures increase, SAP should shine.

It sells at 17 times my 2015 earnings estimate with a 1.8% dividend yield.

SAP (SAP, Tech30)
YTD performance: +8%
Current price: $75
Price target: $85

Morgan Stanley believes SAP's future prospects are sky-high because of its investment in the cloud.

While heavy R&D costs have eaten into SAP's margins recently, that should change as customers continue to transition to cloud computing.

SAP is the firm's top pick in European software because of the "resilience" in its core license and maintenance business and "best in class cloud growth."

Internet of Things Stocks to Buy: SAP SE (SAP)

A recent IoT gallery at ComputerWorld listed SAP SE (ADR) (NYSE:SAP) as the most powerful IoT company in the world. The call is based on SAP’s HANA Enterprise Resource Planning suite.

Databases will be at the heart of managing the IoT — billions of things can’t be managed any other way. SAP calls its Leonardo a “digital innovation system,” a way to combine all the elements of modern technology from the cloud to blockchain to machine learning in one grand concert. In this new world, data is the new gold.

SAP stock had been pacing rival Oracle until June when the stock just stopped dead in the water. That is not down to analysts changing their views. Most still say you should buy the stock. But the past two-quarters have seen lower net income, even while revenues continue to grow at 10% year-over-year.

SAP is a German company run by an American, Bill McDermott. Its bets on the Internet of Things aren’t its only play for investors. The company is big in workforce planning, in finance, in social media and in forecasting, among other things.

Rather than building its own clouds and software standards for IoT, SAP has partnered with BASF SE (OTCMKTS:BASFY), another German company, to collect data on industrial software from OEMs and service providers, then store it in a single database. This should limit its exposure to the software costs in IoT integration while adding partners for future sales efforts.

As GE proves, it can be as costly to get into a market too-early as too-late. SAP hopes its moderate pace will make it right on time.
