Chart by way of Piper Sandler’s new note on Coinbase. They really do not consider it’s investing as a proxy for Bitcoin but I know it is. Here’s their acquire:
COIN shares have carried out in-line with bitcoin due to the fact reaching an all-time closing higher on 11/9/21. COIN shares and the value of bitcoin (which we use as a proxy for broader cryptocurrency costs) have fallen 46.4% & 45.5%, respectively, considering that COIN attained a document closing superior on 11/9/21. Whilst this is undoubtedly a substantial move to the draw back, we believe that it has a lot more to do with traders pricing in long term fee hikes throughout fintech/growth investments as a full and significantly less to do with the expected trajectory of cryptocurrency/electronic asset adoption.
In any case, here’s my acquire: There is definitely no opportunity that Coinbase is effective as a inventory so extensive as crypto price ranges, BTCUSD in individual, remain in a 50% drawdown. And – obviously! – a Bitcoin rally back again the highs nearly assures a a great deal greater COIN selling price. It also works the other way – if Coinbase finds itself in a huge regulatory problem, Bitcoin price ranges will really feel that force. If there’s a large data breach or hacking event for Coinbase, Bitcoin will fall out of fear for the safety of crypto in typical.
So indeed, I fully grasp it is not basically a Bitcoin ETF. But it is close enough, no?
