Elastic (NYSE: ESTC) is a company that primarily sells software as a service (SaaS) solutions that cater to search, logging, security, and analytics applications. While Elastic has been posting robust growth (revenues projected to rise ~50% in FY’20), the company saw its stock decline by 16% over the last week. Investors appear to have turned more cautious about high-growth software stocks, amid macroeconomic uncertainty with the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China and the possibility of a recession. Elastic stock trades at about 14x its projected FY’20 revenues (FY ends April), and remains loss-making, implying that investors could view it as being a risky bet in the current environment. Below, we take a look at the company’s financial performance over the last few years and the outlook over 2020 and 2021.
