Does Bitcoin’s Rally To $57K Make Coinbase Stock More Attractive?

Coinbase stock (NASDAQ: COIN) has gained almost 11% over the last week (five trading days) considerably outperforming the S&P 500, which was up by just about 1% over the same period. The gains are likely driven by the recovery in Bitcoin prices in recent weeks. While the bellwether cryptocurrency saw a big sell-off through the summer, it has rallied by about 6% over the last week and about 24% over the last month, trading at levels of $57,000 as of Monday.
