Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall better than others Schwab account provides very useful research capability. I have used all the other top brokerages and Schwab is the far better. Schwab's research is very tailored for Value investors, which is a big plus. Mostly the historical trends graph, earnings report, easily readable statements, and alert system are awesome. I would recommend Schwab if you are a value investor and care about understanding the underlying factors of a company before investing. I should also mention that the customer service is top notch and they are very proactive to solve your issues. Far better than others. On the other hand, I should say the website is very old. The pages loads on the left side of the browser. The PDF version of the earning reports could be web based. The whole navigation and organization of contents are poor. The portfolio sections should have the option to add PE, PB, and next earnings date columns option. The mobile experience is average. But if you compare it with other big brokerages they are also well behind. I think there is a big gap within this area and Schwab should avoid the gap which will attract more Millennials and Generation Z investors.
