Reasons to Retain Green Dot (GDOT) Stock in Your Portfolio

Green Dot Corporation GDOT is currently banking on its long-term growth strategies and focusing on market expansion with the help of its banking-as-a-service (BaaS) account programs.

The company has an impressive Growth Score of B. This style score condenses all the essential metrics from the company’s financial statements to get a true sense of the quality and sustainability of its growth.

The company’s earnings for 2022 and 2023 are expected to grow at a rate of 10.4% and 10.5%, respectively, on a year-over-year basis.

Factors That Augur Well

Green Dot remains focused on ensuring the long-term growth of its businesses. The company’s efforts are toward the acquisition of long-term users of its products, improving brands and image, building market adoption and awareness of products, and increasing card usage and customer retention. Its sales and marketing efforts remain focused on a broad group, ranging from never-banked to fully-banked consumers.

Green Dot is expanding its addressable market with the help of its BaaS account programs. The company partners with some top consumer and technology companies, including Amazon and Apple, to design and develop their fintech banking solutions through its BaaS platform. These solutions are then made available by these companies to their consumers and partners again through integration with the program, eventually expanding the company’s spectrum of consumers.

Green Dot’s long-standing relationship with Walmartremains a key driver of its operating revenues. The company’s operating revenues derived from products and services offered through Walmart represented 24%, 27% and 34% of total operating revenues for 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
