Shares of Coinbase appreciated ~20% on Wednesday after bitcoin’s price rose above $23,000, reclaiming its 200-week moving average. On Thursday, Coinbase announced a partnership with BlackRock that will enable institutional clients of Aladdin, BlackRock's investment technology solutions platform that services $40 trillion in assets, to trade bitcoin and take advantage of Coinbase's custody, prime brokerage, and analytics solutions. In our view, the partnership has the potential to validate cryptocurrencies as a new asset class and accelerate bitcoin’s institutional adoption. Coinbase is a leading centralized cryptocurrency exchange serving both retail and institutional clients.
Shares of Moderna rose ~16% on Wednesday after the company’s earnings call, in which management highlighted strong growth and a $3 billion dollar stock buyback. We believe Moderna's stock price might have been boosted also by the Biden Administration’s declaration of Monkeypox as a national emergency. Moderna's goal is to deliver mRNA-based therapeutics for a new generation of transformative medicines.
Shares of MercadoLibre traded up ~16% on Thursday after the company reported second-quarter earnings, including revenue that increased 57% in local currency on a year-over-year basis. Although its total revenue growth did decelerate, local currency growth in Mexico reaccelerated from 59% in the first quarter to 66%. Commerce and fintech revenue grew 23% and 107%, respectively, year-over-year. Management dialed back new credit card issuance, as non-performing loans as a percentage of total loans outstanding increased, but emphasized that non-performing loans are well-provisioned. While mindful of the economic weakness in most emerging markets, we believe that MercadoLibre has the potential to become the dominant e-commerce and fintech platform in Latin America.
Shares of Cloudflare rose ~27% on Friday after the company reported strong second-quarter revenue growth of 54% year-over-year, a gross margin of 79%, and guidance that surpassed analysts' expectations. Cloudflare signed a record number of large customers that now represent 60% of total revenue and leveraged the breadth of its platform to navigate around the deteriorating macro environment. Although management anticipates near-term macro headwinds including longer sales cycles, we believe Cloudflare's success in large enterprise sales and new product innovation signals meaningful long-term growth opportunities.
