Stronghold Digital (SDIG), the bitcoin mining company that converts coal waste into power for its operations, outperformed its mining peers on Monday after the investment bank DA Davidson slapped a buy rating on the company and said it sees potential for shares to rise more than 50% over the next 12 months.
- “With the cheapest valuation in our miner coverage, SDIG has the potential to outperform as it executes on its unique strategy,” DA Davidson senior analyst Christopher Brendler wrote.
- Brendler said Stronghold’s strategy to own and operate its own power-generation plant reduces return on invested capital. At the same time that strategy lowers risks to the company during a bear market and increases long-term potential.
- The analyst said that supply-chain disruptions have slowed the delivery of miners for Stronghold, but he expects the delays to be “measured in weeks not months” for the company.
- Stronghold’s stock pared earlier gains but was still faring better than most crypto miners on Monday.
- On Oct. 20, Stronghold shares opened 42% higher than its initial public offering price of $19.
