Marathon Digital fundamental background ahead of its Q1 trading statement

Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc (MARA) which works in the digital asset technology industry, recently shared its impressive earnings for the quarter that ended on May 10th. The company did better than expected, reporting a loss per share of 5 cents, compared to the forecast loss of 10 cents.

Marathon Digital focuses on mining digital assets within the blockchain ecosystem in the United States. It was originally named Marathon Patent Group, Inc., and changed its name to Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc in February 2021 to better reflect its main operations.

With a market value of $2.66 billion and a beta of 5.02, Marathon Digital has proven itself to be a major player in the digital asset technology industry. The company has strong financial indicators like a current ratio and quick ratio of 16.22, showing that it can meet its short-term financial obligations.

A debt-to-equity ratio of 1.34 indicates that borrowing levels remain under control, an important factor in this period of rising interest rates.

Marathon Digital share price – technical view

Marathon Digital’s share price has risen by nearly 400% year-to-date and after five consecutive weeks of rising prices doesn’t show any technical signs of topping out.

The next upside targets are the May 2021 low at $18.32, followed by the August 2022 high at $18.88 and the July 2021, January-to-March 2022 lows at $19.43 to $20.61.

After a six week sideways trading spell from May to mid-June the Marathon Digital’s share price has suddenly taken off and has been rising in a steep upward manner ever since.

Slips should find support along the one-month uptrend line at $15.67, followed by the last daily reaction low made at last Thursday’s $14.51 low. While above this level, immediate upside pressure should be maintained.

Further potential support at the $12.83 April peak is more significant but isn’t expected to be revisited anytime soon.
