Robinhood’s assets under custody surpass the $100 Billion mark for the second consecutive month

TL;DR

  • Robinhood’s assets surged to $118.7 billion in February, marking its second month above $100 billion.
  • Bernstein’s “outperform” rating highlights Robinhood’s potential to grow its crypto revenue nine-fold by 2025.
  • Despite challenges, Robinhood’s revenue per customer grows as it adapts to market shifts, driving its shares to a 2-year high.

Robinhood, the Menlo Park, California-based brokerage, has witnessed a significant surge in Assets Under Custody (AUC), marking its second consecutive month of breaching the $100 billion milestone. In February, AUC grew by an impressive 16% to reach $118.7 billion, reflecting its robust performance in managing its clients’ assets.

Analyst coverage and growth expectations

Bernstein, a prominent financial research and investment firm, initiated coverage of Robinhood, bestowing it with an “outperform” rating. The move comes amidst optimistic projections for the company’s cryptocurrency revenue, anticipated to skyrocket nine-fold by 2025. Bernstein highlights Robinhood’s strategic advantage in offering a comprehensive suite of cryptocurrency services within a regulated brokerage platform, positioning it favorably in the rapidly expanding crypto market.

Amidst forecasts of the cryptocurrency industry’s total market value soaring to $7.5 trillion by 2025, Robinhood emerges as a formidable contender. Its competitive fee structure distinguishes it from other crypto exchanges, including industry giant Coinbase, while traditional brokers remain cautious about venturing into cryptocurrency trading. This advantageous positioning sets the stage for Robinhood to capitalize on the burgeoning demand for crypto assets, aligning with its overarching strategy of delivering sustainable growth and profitability.

Retail trader activity and financial performance

Robinhood’s meteoric rise parallels the increased engagement of retail traders, constituting its primary client base. The recent surge in Bitcoin prices, surpassing previous record highs and breaching the $73,000 mark, alongside the relentless ascent of the S&P 500, has further fueled investor enthusiasm. 

Despite declining active users on its platform in recent quarters, Robinhood has demonstrated resilience by bolstering revenue per customer, underscoring its ability to adapt to evolving market dynamics.

While Robinhood shares attained a more than 2-year high in Wednesday’s trading session, the stock continues to trade below its IPO price of $38 per share, reflecting the lingering impact of its tumultuous public debut in July 2021. 

Nevertheless, the company’s sustained growth trajectory, bullish analyst sentiments, and favorable market conditions bode well for its long-term prospects. As Robinhood navigates the intricacies of the financial landscape, its unwavering commitment to delivering value to investors remains paramount.
