Robinhood Post-IPO: What’s the Song About?

For its landmark IPO, Robinhood earmarked over 25% for its retail investors, many of whom are seemingly first-time investors, a disruptive initiative, because retail investors seldom get first preference in IPOs. The move didn’t fire but that did not discourage the founders, Vlad Tenev and Baiju Bhatt either.

But all said and done, Robinhood has made an impact. The strong user base and the reputation of being an unrelenting disruptor, force the markets to keep the expectations high and correspondingly, the price as well. One can expect financial innovations from Tenev, Bhatt and company that can redefine paradigms to script another audacious growth story. The big news will be when this possibility becomes a strong reason for an attractive takeover.
