Investors were pleased to see the digital financial services company continue thriving despite the challenging economic environment across the United States as consumers deal with record-high inflation and the rising cost of living.

Anthony Noto, SoFi Technologies CEO, said: “We delivered another quarter of record financial results with robust growth in members, products, and cross-buy. We generated our sixth consecutive quarter of record adjusted net revenue, which was up 51% year-over-year. We also generated record adjusted EBITDA, which more than doubled sequentially for the second consecutive quarter,”

Adding:

“Strength across all three of our business segments — Lending, Technology Platform and Financial Services — drove our record third quarter adjusted net revenue of $419 million and record adjusted EBITDA of over $44 million.”

The CEO cited the award of a bank charter as a crucial milestone, which allowed it to expand its product offerings and compete more effectively with traditional banks. The digital bank’s total deposits grew 86% to $5.0 billion during the quarter. The bank further noted that 85% of its SoFi Money deposits were from its members.

Investors were happy to see the company record significant growth in deposits despite the challenging economic climate that has left most consumers with less disposable income for savings and other non-essential activities.

So, would I buy SOFI stock? The short answer is yes. The digital bank’s performance is a good reason why and the fact that it is trading near a long-term support zone is another reason.
