Introducing Schwab Stock Slices™.


Give the gift of ownership to a minor through Schwab Stock Slices.

Now anyone can own any of America's leading companies in the S&P 500® for as little as $5, even if their shares cost more.

  • Buy a single slice for as little as $5.

    Let's say Apple's stock is selling for $317. Since you're buying a dollar amount instead of a number of shares, you can buy a fractional share for as little as $5.
  • Or buy up to ten slices at a time.

    You can get fractional shares in 10 different companies for a total price of $50, instead of a total price of $5,563.

All corporate logos and prices are for illustrative purposes only and are not a recommendation, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy any security.

Why buy a stock slice? Glad you asked.

Let's say you want to invest in a company, but its stock price may be higher than what you want to pay. Instead of buying a whole share of stock, you can buy a fractional share, which is a "slice" of stock that represents a partial share, for as little as $5. For example, if a company's stock is selling at $1,000 a share and you were buying $200 worth of it, you would own 0.2 (20%) of a share. With stock slices, investing has never been more accessible.

A simple, low-cost way to invest in any S&P 500 stock.

Anytime you buy fractional shares through Schwab Stock Slices, you can buy a single slice or up to 10 slices for as little as $5 per slice. And of course, you can trade stock slices commission-free online, just as you would regular stocks at Schwab.1
