Investment bank Cowen lowered its revenue, adjusted EBITDA and mining margin expectations for bitcoin miner Marathon Digital Holdings (MARA) following sluggish second-quarter results, and warned about the company's ambitious hashrate goals.

These deals come with execution risk due to Marathon's reliance on third-party suppliers and a lack of infrastructure control, said Cowen analysts Stephen Glagola and George Kuhle said.

Reflecting those disappointing quarterly results, the Cowen team lowered its 2022 revenue estimate for Marathon to $150 million from $204 million, now below the consensus forecast for $189 million. Cowen also dropped its expectations for adjusted EBITDA to $39 million from $86 million, and mining profit to $91 million with 61% margin, down from $132 million and a 64.7% margin.

Cowen continues to rate Marathon at Market Perform, but lifted its price target to $9 from $7 following a near-tripling in the stock price over the last seven weeks to the current $14 per share.
