MongoDB’s Q4 Earnings Fail to Satisfy Sky-High Investor Expectations

MongoDB reported revenues soaring by 30% year-over-year to $432.9 million versus the consensus estimate of $406.34 million. The cloud-based database software provider’s adjusted profits of 96 cents per share surpassed expectations, more than doubling the guidance range of 47 to 50 cents and outshining the Wall Street consensus of 51 cents. However, under generally accepted accounting principles, MongoDB reported a loss of 41 cents per share for the quarter.

 

While the company’s guidance for the January 2024 fiscal year projects revenue between $1.654 billion and $1.658 billion, marking an upward revision from the previous range of $1.596 billion to $1.608 billion, and adjusted profits of $2.89 to $2.91 per share, exceeding Wall Street’s projections, the market response was somewhat tepid. Guggenheim analyst Howard Ma, in a pre-quarter research note, anticipated MongoDB to surpass Street consensus, but the fourth-quarter revenue guidance fell short of his expectations, highlighting MongoDB’s position as one of the world’s most expensive enterprise software stocks.
