Nomura downgrades MongoDB to Reduce on 'extreme valuation'
Nomura Instinet Christopher Eberle downgraded MongoDB (MDB) to Reduce from Neutral while raising his price target for the shares to $63 from $43. The stock closed yesterday at $78.86. The company's current market value reflects "extreme valuation," Eberle tells investors in a research note. MongoDB has a "compelling" multi-year, if not multi-decade, opportunity, but it faces "intense competition and deep-pocketed incumbency that won't die easily," the analyst contends. He points out that in the last year alone, Microsoft's (MSFT) Cosmos DB grew from zero to $100M revenue. Eberle believes the current market price of MongoDB assumes no risks.
