Earnings Review: $CRWD, $ESTC, $MDB, $VEEV
With earnings season behind us (for my portfolio, that is), I wanted to share my thoughts on several holdings that reported strong quarters. Here is the high-level review:

$CRWD - Several people here have discussed the company now tracking customers with 7+ modules. This speaks for the quality of the platform and the strong demand for the products.

$ESTC - Quarter was strong but they are spending a high percentage of revenue (50%) and gross profit (70%!) on sales & marketing. Otherwise, results were solid.

$MDB - Huge beat on earnings. Atlas growth has accelerated year-over-year. Still a pricey stock in my opinion.

$VEEV - Beat and raise. Veeva Data Cloud is bringing some quality new features to the platform. Business as usual for Veeva.

More in-depth thoughts here:

"More impressively, customers adopting four, five, and six or more modules grew to 71%, 59% and 35%. More impressive still is the fact that they are now announcing the number of customers adopting seven or more modules (19%). This is an incredible demonstration of Crowdstrike growing with their customers. Oh, and management raised full-year 2023 guidance across the board. There’s a lot to like here."

Wow, they are killing it.

$ESTC - strong quarter. Stock down. I'm buying!
$ESTC is a fantastically innovative company. They have a great quarter with most important metrics improving. (Bookings down a bit but that's only because their move to cloud = more monthly contracts that have no 'billings' associated)

They've raised their guidance over $20M since last qtr and over $70M since Q1 qtr. Beast!

With the 75% growth in cloud which is now >30% of total revenues, there seems to be significant tailwinds of growth. BTW TAM is huge and they just settled with Amazon where latter can no longer use 'Elastic' open-source trademark, which caused confusion.

This stock has gotten hammered (like most) but also since their founder 'stepped down from CEO to focus on what he does best - be CTO. And their CPO who is a seasoned exec, was promoted to CEO. I view this as at worse neutral, likely positive.

Of course, the stock is down after earnings. I'm already down ~20%. But now they trade at <7x revenues. Imo, this is a mouth-watering prospect. I'll be tripling down here (bought some today and will over the next few weeks just coz of macro uncertainties)

Upcoming Earnings Calendar (Feb 28th - Mar 4th)
Hey guys! Here's the upcoming earnings calendar! Two of my holdings, $SE and $SOFI report next week, so I'll be paying significant attention to both. Other than that, I'm also interested in seeing what retailers like $TGT $BBY and $COST have to say about supply chain issues and inflation.

Good luck to everyone!

Portfolio update
Roughly my portfolio. I should note that I can't connect one of my brokerage. As a result, each of the portfolio weight is overstated by around 25%. Also, I have a large investment in $ESTC (~10%) and medium investments in $PYPL and $SPOT (3%ish)
