- H.C. Wainwright analyst sees upside in Bitfarms to $2.0 a share.
- He explained his constructive view in a research note on Friday.
- Bitfarms stock has already nearly tripled since the start of 2023.
Shares of Bitfarms Ltd have already nearly tripled since the start of the year but an H.C. Wainwright analyst is convinced that rally is far from over just yet.
Bitfarms stock could climb to $2.0
On Friday, Kevin Dede reiterated his “buy” rating on the bitcoin miner and said its shares could climb to $2.0 – up another 80% from here.
The bullish call on Bitfarms stock arrives only hours after the company expanded operations in Argentina that increased its fleet hash to 5 EH/s.
Estimates Dede has for 2023 are based on a hash rate of about 5.7 EH/s – a level he’s confident the miner will hit in its September quarter.
This fleet expansion also came without further shareholder dilution – an added prize not universally shared across the spectrum of publicly traded bitcoin miners.
Bitfarms Ltd is generating cash
The H.C. Wainwright analyst remains constructive on Bitfarms Ltd also because it did not slip into negative EBITDA even in the fourth quarter when thing went haywire for the crypto space at large.
Other reasons cited for the constructive view on Bitfarms stock include its gross mining margin that declined sharply (year-over-year) in 2022 but still stood at a healthy 33% nonetheless. Dede said in his research note:
We understand potential upside in Argentina. With greater financial flexibility via stronger balance sheet, Bitfarms has options to consider additional business development opportunities.
Expansion in Quebec, Paraguay, and Washington State will help the share price as well, he concluded.
