Selfwealth’s recent record
Selfwealth could be excused for feeling a little hard done by given its current share price losses are in the wake of a 178% increase in annual revenue, reported four days ago.
In its quarterly appendix, the company announced a record quarterly operating revenue of $5.78 million, a record quarterly increase of 18,645 active traders to 85,944 (up 166% year on year) and a positive quarterly cash flow from operating activities of $558,000.
It also recorded promising US results. The performance of its new US trading product throughout the GameStop trading frenzy was “particularly pleasing” according to the report, amidst platform issues and trading restrictions at competing trading platforms.
This led to record client acquisition for SelfWealth together with a “much larger than expected” 25% take-up of the US trading functionality.
The Selfwealth share price falls are possibly a slight market correction, given its share price has rocketed by more than 290% over the past 12 months. However, Selfwealth shares have declined each day since the release of the company’s quarterly update.
