Robinhood reported quarterly net revenues of $365 million, up 35% from the same quarter last year.

The company reported a quarterly loss per share of $2.06, wider than the consensus estimate of a loss of $1.36 per share. The company had reported a loss of $0.05 per share in the same quarter last year.

The CEO of Robinhood, Vlad Tenev, said, “This quarter was about developing more products and services for our customers, including crypto wallets. More than one million people have joined our crypto wallets waitlist to date. With 24/7 live phone support, we believe that Robinhood is becoming the most trusted and intuitive platform for retail and crypto investors.” (See Robinhoodstock chart on TipRanks)
