  • During Q2 2020, Charles Schwab has been able to add new accounts and increase its daily average trades

  • I Know First can provide Schwab investors with multiple stock forecasting options, including custom stock market predictions for individual portfolios

Charles Schwab Corporation is a savings and loan holding company. The company provides investors with financial advisory services such as wealth management, securities brokerage, and banking. They also serve as a brokerage, where investors can access multiple investment products, as can be seen above. The large diversity of accounts and products ensures that all customers will find the perfect investment opportunity.

Charles Schwab Recent Success

The company had a mixed Q2, with results released on July 15, 2020. The company was able to realize a growth in daily active trades, up 126% from last year, at 1.62 million DARTS. This is an increase from the 1.54 million daily active trades in the first quarter of 2020. The brokerage also added 1.6 million new accounts. This includes the 1.1 million USAA accounts obtained from the sale of USAA’s portfolio to Schwab. Excluding the USAA accounts, the broker added 552,000 new accounts in the second quarter. All in all, Schwab now manages a record $4.11 trillion in clients assets from 14.1 million accounts.

Despite this success, the company also missed earnings estimates. As reported by CNBC, earnings came in at 48 cents per share, below estimates of 53 cents per share. Revenue also fell short of estimates, with the company making $2.45 billion in the second quarter in comparison to forecasts of $2.49 billion. However, these missed estimates may come as a result of the elimination of the platform’s trading fee. The company claimed in October that cutting trading fees to zero would cost the company up to $100 million in quarterly revenue. Despite the short term losses, this was a significant move to make. This move set the trend for other online brokerages to eliminate their trading fees – rendering Chalres Schwab a leader in the industry. 

How Charles Schwab Stands Out From Competitors?


Charles Schwab stands out from other online brokerages due to its strong online presence and vast amount of trading and account options. The age and reputation of the platform recruits more experienced investors than newer competitors. The platform also provides investors with a plethora of educational material, making the platform attractive to novice investors as well. Additionally, a comparison of Schwab with its top competitors demonstrates it to hold the lowest trading fees for various products. Schwab also recently acquired TD Ameritrade, which may have resulted in their missed earnings. The combination of the two companies resources will also only further entice more investors to use Schwab.

Charles Schwab recently implemented fractional trading. This new service is particularly attractive to more novice investors, who may not have the skills and knowledge to trade more unstable stocks.  This development no longer renders price a significant factor in the decision to purchase a stock; instead, fractional trading allows Schwab investors to now focus on the valuation of the stock, instead of its price. All in all, this would allow Schwab investors to further diversify their portfolios, making the brokerage more competitive than ever. In addition to fractional trading, Charles Schwab also offers various global indices. Fractional trading, as well as a larger array of trading options, renders Charles Schwab a unique brokerage that attracts a wide variety of investors.
