Robinhood’s net revenue drops and experienced a sharp decline in the trading activity for Q1 2022 as per the latest reports. The broader market remaining bearish and the recent global equity selloffs also contributed to the disappointing financial figures.

The company’s adjusted EBITDA was negative $143 million which is a huge decline from the positive $115 million a year ago and the monthly active users fell 10% to 15.9 million compared to the 17.7 million a year ago.
The company stated that the results reflected the macroeconomic change as its CEO Vlad Tenev said this is the first time the customers are experienced the opposite of low-interest rates and low inflation but rising markets. The trading activities derived from meme stocks including AMC Entertainment, GameStop, and Dogecoin which accounted for a huge portion of the company’s revenue last year. With the market environment changing in the past 12 months, the growth stocks and crypto are under pressure, and the trading firm experienced difficulties but gained confidence from the investors. While vowing to focus on long-term growth, the company announced to lay off 9% of its employees. At the time of writing, the stock HOOD bounced from the fall during the pre-market hours and traded above $10.0.
