Frequently asked questions

What are fractional shares?

Stash breaks down whole investments into smaller, more affordable pieces—called fractional shares. That way, you don’t have to pay for an entire expensive share in order to start investing in your favorite stocks and funds. You can start with as little as 1¢ (or 5¢ for investments priced at more than $1,000 per share).

How do fractional shares work?

Fractional shares work the same way as a whole share. You buy and sell fractional shares as you would any other security, and you also receive the same rights and disclosures as a whole share.

Which types of accounts can hold fractional shares?

Stash’s brokerage accounts hold fractional shares—this includes our Personal Portfolio, Retirement Accounts and Custodial Accounts.

Is it harder to sell fractional shares?

Nope! If you want to sell a fractional share with Stash, the process is the same as a whole share—placing the order takes seconds.

Do you get dividends on fractional shares?

Fractional shares have the same rights as a whole share. If a whole share receives a dividend, a fractional share will generate dividends proportional to that fractional share.

Can dividends from fractional shares be included in Stash's dividend reinvestment plan?

Yes - as long as the cash generated from the dividend is enough to buy at least 0.00001 shares.

Are fractional shares worth it?

Absolutely. By lowering the cost of ownership, fractional shares make investing possible for millions of Americans. And investment returns are the same (by percentage) whether you own a whole share or a fractional share—if a stock goes up 10% in value, your investment goes up 10% even as a fractional shareholder.

How much money do I need to start investing?

When you sign up with Stash, you can start investing with as little as 1¢.

Fractional shares start at $0.05 for investments that cost $1,000+ per share.
