Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary may agree with billionaire investor Warren Buffett, and his right-hand man, Charlie Munger, on a number of things. The trading app Robinhood, isn’t one of them.

O’Leary called Robinhood a “misunderstood platform.”
“I think what both Warren and Charlie may not have considered is Robinhood, with its 20-plus million accounts, has done a great service for people who never invested in a stock before,” he added.
The online broker is wildly popular because of Reddit-fueled day traders and other retail investors. It is considered the best platform for starters at stock trading, as people say that it reduces the risk of investing.
As a reply for the claims of Munger, Robinhood said their vision, “If the last year has taught us anything, it is that people are tired of the Warren Buffetts and Charlie Mungers of the world acting like they are the only oracles of investing. And at Robinhood, we’re not going to sit back while they disparage everyday people for taking control of their financial lives.”
If you work from a loss, it's much harder to get back to where you started, not to mention earn gains.
Buffett follows the Benjamin Graham school of value investing, which are :
Each of us, through experience or study, has built up useful knowledge on certain areas of the world. Some areas are understood by most of us, while some areas require a lot more specialty to evaluate.
It is important to honestly define what we know and stick to those areas.
Our circle of competence can be widened, but only slowly and over time.
