5 Investors Betting Big on MongoDB (MDB) Stock Now

Shares of cloud services company MongoDB (NASDAQ:MDB) are on a tear today, with MDB stock rising more than 25% in early afternoon trading on a stellar earnings report.

The company reported top- and bottom-line beats. However, unlike most beats, which are typically marginal, MongoDB blew the analysts out of the water. Revenue came in at $368 million for the first quarter, well ahead of the $347 million expected. Additionally, earnings per share exploded higher to 56 cents, compared to the expectation of only 19 cents. That’s a resounding beat that investors can hang their hats on.

MongoDB noted that the company added 2,300 customers during the quarter, increasing its total customer base roughly 5%. That’s much higher than what the Street was expecting. Impressively, despite increasing spending on various sales and marketing-related categories, MongoDB’s margins improved, suggesting significant operating leverage within this business model.

There’s a lot to like about these numbers, and it’s clear retail and institutional investors are diving in. Let’s take a look at which big-money players are continuing to bet on this name right now.
