Factors to Impact Q2 Results

MongoDB’s second-quarter fiscal 2020 results are likely to benefit from robust growth in subscription revenues. Further, growing customer adoption of its proprietary cloud-based platform Atlas is a key driver.

Notably, in the last reported quarter, Atlas revenues skyrocketed more than 340% year over year, accounting for 35% of revenues. Atlas had more than 12,300 customers at the end of the fiscal second quarter compared with more than 11,400 sequentially.

During the fiscal second quarter, the company added MongoDB Atlas Data Lake and MongoDB Atlas Full-Text Search, which are likely to boost customer uptake.

The company’s recent partnership with Alphabet GOOGL division Google Cloud Platform (GCP) makes us more optimistic this earnings season. Atlas’ direct integration within the GCP Console is likely to drive its sales opportunities.

However, higher percentage of Atlas in revenue mix is expected to be an overhang on gross margins. Further, additional expenses associated with the Realm acquisition are likely to keep margins under pressure.

Moreover, intensifying competition from players like Oracle ORCL, IBM, Microsoft MSFT and SAP persists as a key concern.

MongoDB currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

The Hottest Tech Mega-Trend of All

Last year, it generated $8 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $47 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce ""the world's first trillionaires,"" but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.
