Goldman Sachs Has 6 Software Superstars for 2023 With 30% to 150% Upside Potential

The company offers:

  • MongoDB Enterprise Advanced, a commercial database server for enterprise customers to run in the cloud, on-premise or in a hybrid environment
  • MongoDB Atlas, a hosted multi-cloud database-as-a-service solution
  • Community Server, a free-to-download version of its database, which includes the functionality that developers need to get started with MongoDB

The company also provides professional services comprising consulting and training.

Revenue jumped in the second quarter, so analysts will be watching closely to see how the company performed in the third quarter. The company posted a remarkable 73% growth for Atlas, which churns out a stunning 64% of total revenue. The balance comes from enterprise-focused products and services.

The $380 Goldman Sachs price target compares with the $352.05 consensus target Friday’s $172.08 close for MongoDB stock. Hitting the Goldman Sachs target would be a 120% gain.
