Now you can own fractional shares of 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 $150. 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 multiple slices at a time.

    You can get fractional shares in multiple different companies for a total price of $50, instead of a total price of $9,373

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. Share prices will vary based on market conditions. Share % is of one share truncated to one decimal point.

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 30 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 See a list of companies in the S&P 500 Index.

It's easy to get started.
