What’s Behind the Bull Stance on HOOD Stock?

Here’s what Bank of America analyst Craig Siegenthaler said in a note to clients obtained by CNBC:

“Retail engagement peaked in 2021 and then declined significantly through the >500bps of Fed rate hikes and the 2022 bear market, troughing in 2023 […] However, following the emergence of a new bull market last year, we have monitored a rebound in multiple metrics at Robinhood Markets […] and we expect this to continue through 2026.”
