5 Oversold Cryptocurrency Mining Stocks

The cryptocurrency mining stocks on our list appear to be unfairly punished by the sector selloff and could represent solid value should prices rally

SmallCapPower | March 28, 2018: Cryptocurrencies remain in flux, with Bitcoin shifting between US$7,500 and US$11,500 over the past two months. Public interest in Blockchain and cryptocurrencies has also declined, with Bitcoin volumes falling by 41% since February. We have introduced a new metric called Price/MW, derived from the company’s market cap divided by its megawatts of cryptocurrency mining. This metric could show which miners are most undervalued on a near-term basis. That being said, the cryptocurrency mining stocks on our list appear to be unfairly punished by the sector selloff and could represent solid value should prices rally.
