Riot Platforms (RIOT)
Riot is known for mining Bitcoin, and they’re seen as a strong choice for a few reasons. As of Q2 2023, they had a lot of money and digital assets—$510 million worth—and they don’t owe any money. They’re big into mining Bitcoin in the U.S., and now they’re making more Bitcoin at a new place in Navarro County, Texas. This means they have a good chance to grow even more in the coming years.
Back in 2020 and 2021, when cryptocurrency prices were really high, Riot did well, evident by an increase in their stock price. But when things slowed down in the crypto world in 2021, their stock came back down to its original price.
Looking ahead, Riot has big plans to be able to mine 12.5 EH/s of Bitcoin by the end of November 2023. They bought some new MicroBT miners that should help them make even more Bitcoin. When everything is set up and working, they want to be able to mine over 20 EH/s by the middle of 2024. Right now, they have around 7,327 Bitcoins, making about 12.1 each day. With Bitcoin getting more valuable, some people think RIOT is a good stock in 2023.
For people thinking about investing, Riot Platforms (NASDAQ: RIOT) used to be worth as much as $20.7, but now it’s at $10.7. If Bitcoin keeps going up, this could mean Riot makes a lot more money, and that could be good news for people who invest in it.
