Cboe Global Markets Inc. CBOE reported a decline in a number of U.S. funds tracking major indices, including the Nasdaq 100 Index, the Russell 2000 Index and the S&P 500 Index for the trading period between May 9 to May 13, 2022. 

News of the Consumer Price Index (CPI)’s declining acceleration, however, served the markets with a little bit of a psychological breather. Since the announcement on May 11, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF SPY has experienced two consecutive days of price ascension, closing the week at $401.72 per share. 

Global markets have also crept up this week. Cboe reported a rise in a number of European market proxies, including Germany’s DAX 30, France’s CAC 40 and Europe’s MSCI European. 

Brian Armstrong’s Coinbase Global Inc. COIN wins chart of the week following a potent reaction to an earnings report that was not aligned with analyst estimates. 

Finally, Cboe noted important upcoming earnings that may lift investors’ eyebrows in the following week.

Chart Of The Week: COIN

Shares of the cryptocurrency exchange platform Coinbase dropped 18 points – nearly 25% – in the aftermarket hours as a result of a disappointing earnings report. The company’s earnings per share (EPS) stood at a loss of $1.98 per share, a major deviation from the $0.08 EPS analyst estimate. The company’s revenue totaled $1.166 billion, another shortcoming to the $1.5 billion analyst estimate. 

Shares of COIN dropped to a low of $40.81 the day after earnings were released, representing a nearly 43% decline from the pre-earnings price. COIN’s statement that users could lose their crypto holdings if the company goes bankrupt likely played a role in this dramatic movement. 

The company’s stock price, however, has since recovered and climbed back to pre-earnings report levels as the S&P 500 climbed 3.15% in two days. 

Major Cryptos

At the time of writing: 

  • Bitcoin (BTC) declined 13.2%, representing its seventh week of consecutive decline and breaching below $28,000 for the first time since January 2021. 
  • Ethereum (ETH) declined 20.68%, representing its sixth week of consecutive decline.
  • Solana (SOL) declined 33.5%, representing its sixth week of consecutive decline and revisiting price levels held in April 2021.
