The shares of Coinbase Global Inc (NASDAQ:COIN) are up 2.7% at $57.03 at last glance, but opened today's session as high as $59.51. The cryptocurrency platform is rising in step with Bitcoin (BTC), last seen up 5.4% to trade at $29,844.30, a new one-week high. H.C. Wainwright also initiated bullish coverage on COIN with a "buy" rating and a $75 price target -- a 31.5% premium to current levels.

There's room for additional analysts on the bullish bandwagon. Coming into today, 13 of 22 covering brokerages rated COIN a "hold" or worse. And amongst short sellers, the 37.17 million shares sold short account for 20.7% of the equity's available float.

Most popular is the weekly 4/28 60-strike call, while new positions are being opened at the 63-strike call from the same series.

On the charts, Coinbase stock is back above its 100-day moving average, a trendline that, prior to this week, had stepped up as support in early March. Year-to-date, COIN is up 62.4%.



How to collect 1 dividend check every day for LIFE

Did you know you could collect 1 dividend check every day the market is open? You could also do it starting with just $605! For me, I'm collecting 70 dividend checks every quarter…which averages around 1.1 dividend checks every business day. There's no trading behind this... no penny stocks or high-risk investments. All you do is buy and hold and you're set. There's no set up required either. If you start buying the dividend stocks I show you today... you could collect 1 dividend per day starting as early as this week. Click here for all the details.
