Coverage Addition Report: Robinhood Happiness Declines as Adoption Increases
Robinhood Markets, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOOD)
Robinhood is a financial services company that facilitates the trading of stocks, ETFs, and cryptocurrencies via a mobile application. The company pioneered the commission-free trading model, generating its revenues from interest on customers’ balances, selling order information, and margin lending. Robinhood is known for being popular with a younger demographic and, more recently, its involvement with the $GME short squeeze of early 2021. Robinhood recently went public, despite regulatory concerns surrounding ‘payment for order flow’ (PFOF) which accounted for 81% of the company’s 21Q1 revenue.
