For fiscal Q2, MongoDB expects revenue in the range of $180 – 183 million, versus the consensus of $181.06 million. Loss per share is expected in the range of $0.43 – $0.40, versus the loss of $0.33 per share estimated by analysts.

On June 1, Monness analyst Brian White reiterated a Hold rating on the stock.
White commented, “We believe the strong secular demand for next-gen databases remains in place; however, the market’s appetite for growth-at-any-price stocks is waning and MongoDB’s valuation is not for the faint of heart.”
The rest of the Street is cautiously optimistic about the stock with a Moderate Buy consensus rating. That’s based on 9 Buys versus 4 Holds. The average analyst price target of $364.33 implies 34.4% upside potential to current levels. Shares have increased 23.2% over the past year.
