The American financial services firm, Robinhood posted its financial metrics for the fourth quarter and full-year ended 31 December 2021 yesterday. While total revenues saw a decent jump in the latest quarter, the company posted heavy losses.

Net loss for Q4 of 2021 came in at $423 million, compared to the net income of $13 million in Q4 of 2020. For the whole year, net loss stood at $3.69 billion. Additionally, the total number of monthly active users decreased slightly.

However, the biggest worry for investors was Robinhood’s financial outlook for the first quarter of 2022. For Q1 of 2022, the financial trading services provider is expecting less than $340 million in total net revenues.

“We had a momentous year, nearly doubling the number of customers on the platform and making critical investments in our team and infrastructure to support growth,” said Vlad Tenev, the CEO and Co-Founder of Robinhood Markets. “This year, we'll expand our ecosystem of products that make Robinhood the best place to start investing and build wealth for the long term."

Listed on Nasdaq, the shares of Robinhood Markets plunged by more than 12% in after-hours trading on Thursday.

Robinhood’s Product Offering

Amid strong demand for crypto products, Robinhood enhanced its product offering in 2021 and introduced the next phase of the crypto wallets program last week.

“Robinhood has continued to improve the product experience, adding contextual in-app education, rolling out Crypto Gifts and recurring investments, opening up access to IPOs and giving customers a voice with the companies they invest in through the acquisition of Say Technologies and the integration of its Q&A platform into the Robinhood app,” the company noted.

In 2021, Robinhood witnessed immense demand for its trading products amid GameStop frenzy and crypto-mania. The latest results indicate that the financial firm is finding it difficult to maintain the same growth.
