Enable Penny Stock Trading on Fidelity

Fidelity is a broker for the trading of stocks, ETFs, and mutual funds. With stock prices declining and volatility increasing, is there actually a sure thing? Nothing is absolutely certain, but the strategy of buying reverse splitting stocks can be fruitful. I use Fidelity to trade stocks the day before a reverse split occurs and any fractional shares will round up to a full share. Companies will typically perform a reverse split for different reasons, but it is usually to increase the stock price by consolidating shares. Some exchanges like NASDAQ require stocks to trade at a minimum price or risk getting delisted. These companies will round up multiple shares to 1 share. I frequently see 1:10 or 1:100 round-ups. When a share is $0.10 and they will perform a reverse split of 1:10 where they round up fractional shares, a stock that you bought for $0.10 turns into $1.00. You sell it after the reverse split and you just net $0.90

Fidelity is a broker that is friendly to OTC (over-the-counter) stocks where many reverse splits occur. Without enabling Penny Stock Trading, you limit yourself to the stocks you can buy and sell.
