Robinhood (HOOD, $49.80) posts wider-than-expected loss

Robinhood  posted a net loss that were wider than expectations for the second quarter. But the financial services company expressed caution about the third quarter revenue on expected lower trading activity.

The company incurred a net loss of - $2.16 per share in the second quarter, compared to a profit of 9 cents in the year-ago quarter. The FactSet analyst consensus expected a loss of -15 cents a share.

The company’s revenue came in at $565 million, vs. analyst consensus of $521.8 million. It was also double that of last year’s $244 million.

“Our business is affected by many factors, including seasonality, general market conditions and retail trading behavior as well as significant, unanticipated market events,” Robinhood said in a statement

“For the three months ending September 30, 2021, we expect seasonal headwinds and lower trading activity across the industry to result in lower revenues and considerably fewer new funded accounts than in the prior quarter.”
