Let’s dive into those earnings below to see what’s hitting HOOD stock today!

  • The nad news for HOOD stock starts with its diluted losses per share coming in at $2.16 for the quarter.
  • That’s a massive miss next to Wall Street’s estimate of -15 cents for the period.
  • It’s also a negative change from the company’s diluted earnings per share of 9 cents from the same time last year.
  • That also comes with a net loss of $502 million, which is much lower than the net income of $58 million in Q2 2020.

  • Even so, that one bright note wasn’t enough to keep HOOD stock from falling today.

Vlad Tenev, co-founder and CEO of Robinhood, said this about the earnings results.

“We’re encouraged by the number of people who are accessing the financial system for the first time through Robinhood. We’re happy to expand access through products like commission-free crypto trading, which saw strong growth this quarter among women investors in particular, and IPO Access, which gives customers an opportunity to invest in companies at their IPO price.”

HOOD stock was down 8.7% as of Thursday morning.
