In 2020, wild fluctuations in the stock market caused by the pandemic turned millions of people into opportunistic investors. After stocks plunged in March, experienced traders and Nasdaq novices poured their dollars into buzzy tech companies like Tesla and Zoom, as well as businesses bludgeoned by Covid restrictions, including airlines, restaurants and cruises.
To reflect a year of volatility and impulsive investments, Robinhood, the popular trading app that has spurred controversy by marketing itself to young people, released a year-end data dump for its users. A news release promised that the Robinhood Recap would be a “special personalized experience that will take you through your investing journey this year — from views to trades, your most memorable investing moments, large or small, and other milestones along the way.”
Robinhood’s wrap-up — available to anyone who had an active account before Dec. 15 — showed the stocks users purchased, dividends and interest earned, which stock in their portfolio they clicked on the most and other data.
Some people praised the recap’s aesthetic and said they enjoyed finding out how early they were to adopt Robinhood. “We’ve been delighted to hear from many customers who enjoyed taking a look back at their year in investing, from saving screenshots of their recaps to sharing on social media,” a company spokesman wrote in an email.
Robinhood is one of several popular consumer apps to embrace shareable, data-driven year-in-review lists, like Spotify Wrapped, a recap of the upbeat or fittingly depressing songs people listened to in 2020, and Strava’s Year in Sport, which enumerates the miles its users ran and cycled.
