“It’s so easy to overdo a good idea. … Look what happened to Robinhood from its peak to its trough. Wasn’t that pretty obvious that something like that was going to happen?” Munger said at Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting Saturday.
Munger lambasted what he characterized as Robinhood’s “short-term gambling and big commissions and hidden kickbacks and so on.”
“It was disgusting,” Munger said. “Now it’s unraveling. God is getting just.”
Munger in February of last year amid a wild meme-inspired trading rush first criticized Robinhood for its practices.
Robinhood shares are down 88% from their recent high and just reported a decrease in users and a wider-than-expected loss for the first quarter.
