Appreciate it, and trust, I won't "over buy". As I said, I read this whole thread today.Yes in that instance it would be 12 (or 4 each in each account).
Depends on the stock and what dude says. Each stock is different...some can be one share, some can be 4 shares, some can be a percentage of a share and some can be even 100 shares as mentioned each stock is different and it depends on what dude tells you.
But the key is whatever stock it is and whatever dude tells you.......you must not buy on more than 3 accounts on any brokerage or they will catch on and possibly kill your account or stop any reverse splitting of the stocks.
Question about the bolded part: you're saying that sometimes it'll say for example, "buy 0.25 shares"?
