This article is rather interesting... buying fractional shares. Used to be one got them when reinvesting dividends. Cash-out a bit of a problem, as the full standard fee was applied ($25 back 15+years ago), so all fractionals among all investments was the only way to go. That would also include the selling of non-round lots (< 100 sh.). I had to do this when leaving the REITs in '05. But now, with ridiculous pricing of tech stocks that will not split, fractionals have caught on. Pick a stock and join the round-lot pool. The article actually does call it 'democratizing the stock market', which it is.

Robinhood is under investigation now

ONM, I have to tell you I mention you quite a bit when talking to people, without using your name, though I only know your first name anyway.

It comes up that gamblers turned to stocks as a form of gambling, with a surge when casinos got closed down, and so I will talk about Robinhood and how they went after this market, and that I know someone who did exactly all these gambling-like activities there. I still marvel that they got you into short selling and buying on margin.
