Let’s dive into that report below to see what’s pulling RDFN stock down today!

  • The big problem for Redfin comes from its guidance for the first quarter of 2022.
  • This has it expecting a total net loss of $122 million and $115 million.
  • To put that in perspective, the real estate company’s total net loss in the first quarter of 2021 was $36 million.
  • That drags down an otherwise good earnings report from Redfin.
  • That includes earnings per share of -27 cents, which is better than the -31 cents Wall Street was expecting.
  • However, that’s also a negative switch from the 11 cents per share reported in the same period of the year prior.
  • Revenue of $643.1 million also surpassed the $598.77 million that analysts were expecting during the period.
  • It’s also a 163% increase over the $244.52 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Finally, revenue guidance of $535 million to $560 million for Q1 2022 is better than Wall Street’s estimate of $524.59 million.

Glenn Kelman, CEO of Redfin, said the following in the Q4 earnings report dropping RDFN stock today.

‘Redfin is broadening its sources of customer value and corporate income, with title, mortgage, and iBuying now on track to generate gross profits, after years of being subsidized by our brokerage. Entering an uncertain market, Redfin’s pricing power and on-demand service will let us take share and improve operating margins.”
