Coinbase stock is now publicly available to purchase. Here's how you can buy in.
Coinbase, a digital currency exchange, completed its direct listing, debuting on the Nasdaq at $381 per share. Shares quickly jumped to $429.54, but settled to just under $400 after the stock began trading.
Coinbase is the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the US, with over 43 million verified users and $90 billion in platform assets. Its global network is over 115,000 partners strong and spans 100 countries. Private trading of its shares in March 2021 suggests a $90 billion valuation, up $13 billion from its February valuation.
With the release of Coinbase’s S-1 filing, we were able to take a closer look at the company’s financials.
|As of December 31, 2019||As of December 31, 2020|
|Coinbase revenue||$533.7 million||$1.27 billion|
|Coinbase net income (loss)||($30.3 million)||$127.4 million|
In 2019, Coinbase reported $533.7 million in revenue and a net loss of $30.3 million. In 2020, its revenue rose to $1.27 billion and it reported a profit of $127.4 million.
Rising revenue and falling losses is a promising trend — so long as Coinbase can continue its profit-making trajectory. But no investment is free from risk and the inherent volatility of the crypto sector may prove a determining factor in Coinbase’s profitability.
It's impossible to predict how any stock will perform — and IPOs can be particularly volatile. But evaluating the performance of companies like Coinbase can be useful in determining how the market is performing and whether now is a good time to invest in this industry.
