COIN’s loss per share of $2.46 is less than the anticipated $2.85 loss per share by JPMorgan, as per the report. The report also highlighted that the EPS of $2.46 is higher than Bloomberg’s estimate of $2.17 per share.
“Coinbase is well positioned to deliver notable year-on-year improvement in EBITDA at current expense levels with the marked improvement in overall crypto volumes in 2023 thus far combined with somewhat better than anticipated costs cutting going into 1Q23,” said analysts.
