Key points:

  • Canaan, manufacturer of crypto mining computers, delivered on strong Q1 earnings
  • Unpredictability and uncertainty still weights on global growth strategies
  • EPS and revenue were more or less in line with analyst expectations

Digital assets have hit a bit of a rough patch lately, as tougher economic conditions pressure investors into lower risk returns rather than the volatile landscape of cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin recently dipped below the strong historic support of $30,000, suggesting volatility in digital assets is likely to remain a byproduct of the current economic uncertainty for at least the near future. Manufacturer of crypto-mining computers Canaan (NASDAQ: CAN) reported a strong first quarter despite the crypto dip, pointing to a strong trend in mining rather than online asset trading.

The unpredictable environment has taken its toll on all industry, with unpredictability and logistical fogginess now becoming common features of the fiscal climate. Management commented on the company’s need to continue strengthening its partnerships with clients whilst expanding its global footprint as the only surefire way of surviving the tedious landscape.

For the second quarter, Canaan expects revenue of between $252.4M and $283.9M.
