Coinbase to report Q2 results next week
Coinbase Global is expected to report its results for the fiscal second quarter on August 9th. Consensus is for it to lose $3.04 a share (down 147% YoY) on $877.32 million in revenue (down 60% YoY).
Heading into the earnings print, Wall Street has a consensus “overweight” rating on Coinbase stock that’s down more than 50% for the year, even though it has roughly doubled in about a week as Bitcoin and Ethereum continue to bounce off their lows.
The rally might also be related to a short squeeze. “COIN” is the most mentioned stock on WallStreetBets (Reddit) this morning. In June, Coinbase said it’s cutting its workforce by 18% to minimise costs amidst a looming recession.
