Raymond James analysts raised Coinbase Global (NASDAQ:COIN) from Underperform to Market Perform, but noted that it maintains a generally negative long-term stance towards Coinbase, citing concerns about the company’s earnings potential, the perceived commoditization of its offerings, speculative cryptocurrency valuation driven by what he describes as the Greater Fool Theory, and significant regulatory risks.

The analysts also suggested that the potential for pricing pressure could increase if the current cryptocurrency rally continues, potentially inviting competitors to adopt aggressive pricing strategies. Despite these concerns, the analysts acknowledged underestimating the influence of Exchange Traded Products (ETP) inflows on cryptocurrency, particularly Bitcoin, valuations, which has significantly benefited Coinbase’s stock performance.

The analysts suggested that as long as ETP inflows remain strong, the momentum in Coinbase’s stock is likely to continue.
