📰 Recent Headlines
Founded in 2012, Coinbase is the leading cryptocurrency exchange platform in the United States.

Coinbase is building a more fair, accessible, efficient, and transparent financial system enabled by crypto.
The company started in 2012 with the radical idea that anyone, anywhere, should be able to easily and securely send and receive Bitcoin.

Appendix: Metric Definitions
👉 Earnings Yield: A percentage measure of the return the company is making, based on its after-tax earnings and the current share price. Calculated as earnings per share divided by the price per share. Higher earnings yields can be interpreted as representing higher returns for an investment at the current share price.
👉 Trailing Dividend Yield: Your annual income from your investment in the company. Indicated yield represents trailing total annual dividends divided by current stock price.
👉 Price to Book Ratio: This ratio describes the relationship between the share price and the company's contributed accounting equity (plus retained earnings). Calculated as the price per share divided by the book value of equity per share. Other factors being equal, a lower price to book ratio can indicate a more attractive investment, according to some investors.
👉 Price to EBITDA Ratio: This ratio describes the relationship between the share price and the company's contributed accounting equity (plus retained earnings). Calculated as the price per share divided by the book value of equity per share. Other factors being equal, a lower price to book ratio can indicate a more attractive investment, according to some investors.
👉 Return on Assets: A measure of how productive the company's assets are in producing its earnings. Calculated as the earnings divided by the book value of assets of the company. A higher return on assets is often thought by investors to indicate a more efficient and profitable company.
👉 Price to Cashflow: A measure of the current share price as a percentage of the cash flow per share generated by the company. Calculated as cash flow per share divided by the current market price per share. A lower ratio is often thought to represent a more attractive investment by some investors.
👉 Return on Equity: A measure of how productive the company's contributed equity is in producing its profit. Calculated as earnings divided by the book value of equity of the company. A higher return on equity is often thought by investors to indicate a more profitable company.
👉 Price to Revenue: A measure of the price per share of the company as a percentage of its revenue per share. Calculated as share price divided by revenue. A lower ratio is often thought to represent a more attractive investment by some investors.
👉 Enterprise Value to EBIDTA: This ratio expresses the Enterprise Value of a company, which is the market value of equity plus total debt minus cash, divided by the pre-tax earnings before adjustments for interest, depreciation, and amortization. It represents the total value if the business as a multiple of its EBITDA, and a higher ratio is often thought to offer a relatively more attractive investment by some investors.
👉 P/E Ratio: Current stock price divided by trailing annual earnings per share. If a stock sells for $25.50 per share and has earned $2.55 per share this year, then it has a trailing P/E ratio of 10 ($25.50 / $2.55 = 10). This means the stock is currently selling for ten times its earnings. Other factors being equal, investors may regard companies with lower P/Es to be relatively less expensive.
👉 Leverage Ratio: A measure of the amount of debt the company has divided by the market value of its equity plus its debt (less cash), or enterprise value. Other factors being equal, lower leverage in a company's capital structure can mean lower financial risk for investors.
👉 Volatility: Investors may often use this as a measure of an asset's absolute investment risk. Calculated as the annual standard deviation of the percentage daily price changes. The higher the volatility, the more the share price moves up and down, and the more uncertain (riskier) returns may be.
👉 Interest Cover Ratio: A measure of the company's earnings relative to the cost of its debt. Calculated as the cash operating earnings before interest and tax divided by the annual interest expense. A higher number can indicate the company is in a better position to service its debt under different scenarios.
