The company’s revenue growth has been solid over the last two years, growing from $60.1 million in Q1 FY2022 to $79.5 million. However, Domo’s quarterly revenue was only up 6.71% YoY, which might disappoint some shareholders. The revenue actually decreased by $166 thousand in Q1, compared to an increase of $598 thousand in Q4 2023. Domo expects its revenue to grow 4.59% YoY to $79 million in Q2, which is significantly slower than the 20.2% YoY increase the company recorded in the same quarter last year.
Domo’s gross profit margin was 76.6% in Q1, indicating that the company had $0.77 left to spend on developing new products, marketing & sales, and general administrative overhead for every $1 in revenue. The stable gross margin suggests that Domo is doing a good job controlling costs and is not under pressure from competition to lower prices.
Domo’s revenue guidance for the next quarter missed analysts’ expectations, which was unfortunate. However, full-year guidance was roughly in line. The company’s results for this quarter were not the best, causing a decline of 0.81% in stock prices. However, some investors might see this as an opportunity to invest in Domo.
One way to find opportunities in the market is to look for generational shifts in the economy. As almost every company is slowly becoming a technology company and facing cybersecurity risks, the demand for cloud-native cybersecurity is increasing. CrowdStrike, which leads this shift and has revenue growth of 70% YoY and best-in-class SaaS metrics, should definitely be on investors’ radar.
