Bitcoin and blockchain related stocks have been on fire lately.
Coinbase (COIN) reported earnings 2nd Quarter June 2021 earnings of $6.42 per share on revenue of $2.2 billion. The consensus earnings estimate was $2.49 per share on revenue of $1.7 billion. The Earnings Whisper number was $2.40 per share.
Thats a beat of nearly $4.00. And, the company has 68 million verfied users, with tranacting users up 44% for the quarter. We would expect similar action in GBTC, ETHE, RIOT, MARA over the next couple of weeks. Make sure to confirm with volume.
We’d wait for a flag or small pullback over the next few days for new entries, as Coinbase is a bit extended at this time.
