Robinhood's list of popular stocks is a great resource for investors looking for their next big buy. However, it's important to invest in companies with competitive edges over their rivals and sustainable growth drivers for long-term success. Here are two Robinhood stocks worth buying right now that fit those criteria.

The first stock is Walt Disney(NYSE:DIS), a blue-chip entertainment brand with a compelling pivot toward direct-to-customer streaming. The second stock is MGM Resorts(NYSE:MGM), a beaten-down casino operator that can leverage its well-known brand to outperform in the sports betting industry.

Both companies are trading at attractive discounts because of the coronavirus pandemic, and could make good additions to your portfolio.

The coronavirus pandemic has battered Disney's amusement park and studio entertainment businesses, especially in the fiscal third quarter (which ended June 27), due to movement restrictions and lockdowns in the U.S. caused by the crisis. But despite the near-term headwinds, Disney's long-term bull thesis remains intact.
