Buying less than one share is worth it
Buying fractional shares is worth it. Fractional shares allows investors to invest with just $1 dollar! This eliminates the barrier of entry into the stock market. The stock market is an unbiased way of growing wealth. Since there is essentially no minimum to buy stocks, the time to buy stocks is now.
Fractional shares cost one Coffee
Fractional shares allow almost anyone to invest in stocks. A typical coffee is about $2.25. If you skip one coffee a day, you can take that $2.25 you saved and put it into a stock thanks to fractional shares. Over a one month period that adds up to $60 in investments.
Get Your Kids Involved
If you're a parent, buy one less toy for your child and you can use that money to invest in their future. If your son or daughter are old enough, you can even ask them to help you make the investment decision. Though a child may not yet understand business, they do understand what they like. Stocks associated with Roblox, YouTube, and Minecraft are easy examples of products your children may like that may be good long term investments.
The downside to Fractional Shares
The downside to fractional shares is that you do not get to vote in corporate elections or for shareholder proposals. Typically, shareholders vote for members of the board. This board elects a CEO and is responsible for the governance of the company and the accountability of the CEO. Shareholder proposals change the governance and direction of the company. Tesla had multiple shareholder proposals related to the diversity and inclusion of the company in 2021.
