Let’s get right into the nitty-gritty of that news below!

  • The increase in SOFI stock comes alongside the release of its earnings report for the third quarter of 2021.
  • That’s thanks to the company’s adjusted losses per share of 5 cents.
  • This is much better than the -14 cents per share that Wall Street was expecting.
  • It’s also a massive improvement over the loan company’s adjusted per-share losses of 70 cents in Q3 2020.
  • SoFi Technologies also reported revenue of $272.01 million for the third quarter of the year.
  • That has it beating out analysts’ estimate of $255.63 million for the period.
  • It’s also a 35% increase year-over-year compared to $200.79 million in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Another highlight for holders of SOFI stock is new guidance in the earnings report.
  • This has the company expecting revenue for the year to range from $1.002 billion to $1.012 billion.
  • That’s looking good next to Wall Street’s 2021 revenue estimate of $979.57 million.
  • Of course, SOFI stock’s meme status is another factor helping it soar higher today.
  • Meme traders are taking extra note of it and heavy trading comes with that.
  • As of this writing, more than 30 million shares of the stock have changed hands.
  • That’s already a nice jump over the company’s daily average trading volume of about 25.9 million shares.

SOFI stock is up 14.3% as of Thursday morning and is up 91% since the start of the year.
