Coinbase Global Inc (NASDAQ:COIN) operates the largest spot exchange for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) and Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) in the United States but it has recently faced headwinds amid a market slide.

Moody's Investors Service on Thursday downgraded Coinbase's Corporate Family Rating to Ba3 from Ba2 and its guaranteed senior unsecured notes to Ba2 from Ba1. 

Moody's said Coinbase's ratings were placed "under review" for further downgrade. The agency noted "the rapid decline in crypto asset prices," which accelerated during the second quarter of 2022 and will likely "result in lower transaction revenue for the remainder of the year, absent a significant sustained rebound in crypto asset prices and trading volumes."

Also on Thursday, Coinbase said it was planning to phase out its Coinbase Pro platform, targeted at more advanced traders, by the end of the year.

The company also said it would reduce staff by 18% amid the downturn in cryptocurrencies.

The Investment 

Despite the headwinds, if an investor decided to put $100 into Coinbase stock on Thursday when the company's shares closed 13.4% higher at $58.88, here's how much they would have if the shares touched their all-time high of $357.39 hit on Nov. 9, 2021.

Investment Date Of Purchase/Listing Purchase Amount Purchase Price Units/Shares Obtained Worth If Shares Return To ATH Percentage Change
Coinbase Stock June 23, 2022 $100 $58.88 11.70 $506.98 606.98%

The investor would have gained nearly 607% on their Coinbase play and the $100 would turn into $506.98, should the stock regain its all-time high level.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
