The Charles Schwab Corporation Message Board

    Is there really any competition?

    I've been with Chase, TD Ameritrade and E-Trade among others. Nothing compares with Schwab for anyone who has an ounce of brains. Sure, they'll manage your retirement money for several grand per year, but they supply every type of portfolio for the retiree to do it himself with little to no effort. But more importantly Schwab offers the best and cheapest ETFs and Mutual Funds of any outfit, including Vanguard. While Yachtman now has a fee ratio of 1.3%, (too high for a Consumer Reports recommendation), Schwab offers comparable funds for .06%--below Vanguard's cheapest. And their latest ETFs based on fundamental value (instead of total capitalization) is a singular opportunity to those savvy enough to understand the difference. In short, Schwab rules!

    Sentiment: Buy
