NIA’s Hive Blockchain (TSXV: HIVE) hit a new record high on Friday of $6.75 per share for a gain of 812.2% from NIA’s suggestion six weeks ago at $0.74 per share. Considering that HIVE’s fully diluted shares outstanding are now up to 300 million, HIVE’s market cap at $6.75 per share briefly topped out at over $2 billion. NIA predicted at $0.74 per share that HIVE would reach $2-$3 per share by year-end and never expected HIVE to reach $6.75 per share.
The truth is, HIVE has so far raised a total of $83.5 million at an average of $0.924 per share – and has spent $72.8 million to acquire Ethereum mining facilities that NIA estimates will earn annualized gross profits of $31.2 million. This means it will take HIVE about 28 months just to break even on its capital expenditures. NIA sees no reason for HIVE to be worth $2 billion and believes it is still overvalued at Friday’s closing price of $4.71 per share. NIA predicts that HIVE will finish 2017 back in the $2-$3 per share range.
Between now and year-end, about 85 million HIVE shares will become free-trading and enter the public float.
