6 Competitive Stocks to Consider
These newly rated stocks all earn Morningstar economic moat ratings of narrow.
A few months ago, Morningstar's equity research team initiated coverage of one of this year’s most-anticipated IPOs, Coinbase (COIN). Though the company is the leading U.S.-based cryptocurrency exchange, we don’t think it has carved out a competitive advantage and therefore assign it a no-moat rating.
“Coinbase has built a strong competitive position for itself, but without more confidence in the long-term viability of cryptocurrency as an asset class there is too much potential for Coinbase's returns on invested capital to rapidly evaporate for us to award the company a moat,” explains analyst Michael Miller.
