Season Kick-Off

The stock market ended mixed on Wednesday.

Despite the market momentum fading in the last 2 hours of the day, the Dow Jones index had enough strength to sustain a near-zero gain. Wednesday also marked the earnings report season kick-off, starting with a few big banks. The reports exceeded even the most optimistic expectation as the banking sector presented better-than-expected results for 2021’s first quarter. However, it was not enough to keep investors bullish as both the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq index logged negative returns.

Better Than Expected

So, what happened?

Shares of Wells Fargo (Ticker: WFC) were up by more than 5% on Wednesday. The rally came after the bank’s first-quarter results topped analysts’ expectations. Although analysts’ estimates pointed to a $17.5 billion first-quarter revenue, Wells Fargo eclipsed the estimates and posted an $18.1 billion revenue. Furthermore, the higher revenue totaled a $4.7 billion net income. The bank’s CEO Charlie Scharf stated that the better-than-expected results reflect the U.S. economic improvements. Its robust results demonstrate the economy is on its way back to pre-pandemic levels.

So what happened?

Shares of Poshmark (Ticker: POSH) were down by more than 4% on Wednesday. Although the second-hand clothing marketplace beat the analysts’ consensus on its last earnings results, its shares underperformed due to multiple sell recommendations for its stock. Along with the analysts’ recommendations, Poshmark’s investors did not like the news that Poshmark’s CEO, CFO, and COO liquidated large amounts of shares. The liquidation appeared as insiders think the stock is still overvalued, leading to a sell-off.

So what happened?

Coinbase’s (Ticker: COINstock debuted on Wednesday.

Founded in 2012 as a platform to simplify cryptocurrency trading, Coinbase became the most popular platform to buy and sell cryptos in the U.S. Since then, Coinbase showed it is capable of achieving its foundation goal. The platform started in 2021 with more than 56 million users, soaring in value alongside digital currencies. Although Nasdaq set a $250 reference price-per-share on Tuesday, Coinbase’s stock debuted trading above $380 apiece. Unlike the traditional IPO process, the world’s largest crypto exchange preferred to list its stock directly. The decision allowed employees and existing shareholders to sell shares immediately when the market opened. Even though its valuation was at $8 billion in 2018, Coinbase closed its first trading day with a $86 billion market capitalization value.

Specialists now point to Coinbase as an investment in cryptocurrency for those who don’t want to invest in cryptos directly, as the debut shows that the crypto market is here to stay.
