MongoDB Inc (MDB) was the largest gainer today.

Shares in the company rose 24.7% to $500.70.

“MongoDB saw its second-quarter revenue climb 44%, roundly beating expectations,” said Sheri Bechtel, editor for Finder’s share trading and investing team. “But if we move away from revenue, the company’s Atlas cloud database surpassed 200 million cumulative product downloads with 75 million of those downloads seen this year alone. In general, MongoDB seems poised for growth. The company says it expects third-quarter revenue to climb to $202 million to $204 million, giving it a 34% year-over-year increase. Worth watching this one.”
