When you see that almost half of the companies in the IT industry in the United States have price-to-sales ratios (or “P/S”) below 2x, MongoDB, Inc. (NASDAQ:MDB) looks to be giving off strong sell signals with its 19x P/S ratio. Nonetheless, we’d need to dig a little deeper to determine if there is a rational basis for the highly elevated P/S.

How MongoDB Has Been Performing

Recent times have been advantageous for MongoDB as its revenues have been rising faster than most other companies. The P/S is probably high because investors think this strong revenue performance will continue. If not, then existing shareholders might be a little nervous about the viability of the share price.

Keen to find out how analysts think MongoDB’s future stacks up against the industry? In that case, our free report is a great place to start.

How Is MongoDB’s Revenue Growth Trending?

MongoDB’s P/S ratio would be typical for a company that’s expected to deliver very strong growth, and importantly, perform much better than the industry.

If we review the last year of revenue growth, the company posted a terrific increase of 33%. The latest three year period has also seen an excellent 192% overall rise in revenue, aided by its short-term performance. So we can start by confirming that the company has done a great job of growing revenue over that time.

Shifting to the future, estimates from the analysts covering the company suggest revenue should grow by 24% per annum over the next three years. That’s shaping up to be materially higher than the 14% each year growth forecast for the broader industry.

With this in mind, it’s not hard to understand why MongoDB’s P/S is high relative to its industry peers. It seems most investors are expecting this strong future growth and are willing to pay more for the stock.

What Does MongoDB’s P/S Mean For Investors?

It’s argued the price-to-sales ratio is an inferior measure of value within certain industries, but it can be a powerful business sentiment indicator.

We’ve established that MongoDB maintains its high P/S on the strength of its forecasted revenue growth being higher than the the rest of the IT industry, as expected. Right now shareholders are comfortable with the P/S as they are quite confident future revenues aren’t under threat. It’s hard to see the share price falling strongly in the near future under these circumstances.
