Recent News & Updates
Couchbase: A Strong Database Play But Watch Out For Profitability
Couchbase is a database company that is seeing success in evolving its products to the cloud. The way the company has designed its database is resulting in better revenue growth than competitors since the beginning of 2022. However, this remains a loss-making company, and with profitability being a critical criterion during high inflation times, there are risks that the stock could suffer from downside if margins fall. Still, given product strength, cash position, and the significant backlog, together with the ability to generate recurring revenues, this is a stock to be put on your watchlist. Watch out for the company's ability to cut down on operating losses before investing.
