Coinbase Global Inc (NASDAQ:COIN) stock sold off this week after the company announced it received a “Wells Notice” from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in regard to its Lend program.
Requisite Capital Management's Bryn Talkington took advantage of the pullback and added to her position in Coinbase, she said Thursday on CNBC's “Fast Money Halftime Report.”
The stock traded down from $280 last week to $257 on the SEC news, she said.

Talkington told CNBC that she is a big fan of Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong and a big believer in the technology around cryptocurrency.
Coinbase reported revenue of $2 billion and net income of $1.6 billion last quarter, she said, adding that the company also has $4.4 billion in cash.
Coinbase has the potential to reach net income of about $8 billion next year, Talkington said.
“If you look at their runway, this company is growing so fast.”
Coinbase also just got approved to offer its platform in Japan and Germany, which are really large crypto markets, she noted.
