Robinhood Markets stock analysis for 2024

On 4 August 2021, five days after the IPO, Robinhood Markets Inc. stock peaked at 85.00 USD. A protracted decline followed, with the quotes plummeting 92% to 6.80 USD by 17 June 2022. Subsequently, the shares traded within the range of 8 USD-13 USD.

The release of the Q4 2023 earnings report triggered a breakout above the range’s upper boundary. At the time of writing, the stock was trading at 14.00 USD. A breakout of the upper boundary may indicate a high probability of further price growth.

The next resistance level is 16.00 USD. If the price breaks above it, this will likely open up the possibility of a long-term price rise to 34.00 USD. However, it is difficult to imagine this stock price movement without robust financial performance.

In 2023, Robinhood Markets Inc. closed two quarters reporting a net profit, suggesting a trend towards sustained profitability. This positive trajectory may prompt the company to launch share buyback programs or offer dividend payouts in the future.

Moreover, a noteworthy milestone for the corporation in 2023 was its expansion into the international market. It can be assumed that this move may open avenues for expanding the company’s client base and strengthening its financial performance. Consequently, it suggests that Robinhood’s growth potential is yet to be fully realised.

These dynamics underscore the importance of monitoring these trends and their potential impact on Robinhood's performance and market position.
