The fintech industry continues to grow by leaps and bounds and with that growth have come lots of new investing apps for investors, young and old, to use in their pursuit of investment returns. In 2018, fintech companies in the U.S. got $12.4 billion in funding, 43% higher than a year earlier. Many of those fintech companies are using the funding to develop apps to make investing and personal finance more accessible and more rewarding. According to CB Insights, there are something like 39 fintechs worth $1 billion or more. Together, those 39 companies are worth an estimated $147.4 billion. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsConsumers like to use apps to manage their finances. Data from 2016 suggests the average person uses between 1-3 apps to get the job done. As fintechs continue to create new apps to handle different aspects of our financial lives, I'm sure more young investors will gravitate to them. * 8 Penny Stocks That Have Fallen From Grace With that in mind, here are 10 investment apps for young investors to consider, as they put their hard-earned money to work. AcornsSource: via AcornsThe problem for most young investors is that they don't have a lot of money to invest because of student loans, steep rents, low wages etc. While understandable, the Acorns app allows you to invest your spare change to get the process started. Another exciting service Acorns has developed is Found Money, which uses brand loyalty to build your investment account. So, every time you buy something at one of the Found Money partners, that company credits your Acorns account with the applicable savings. The one thing to be aware of is the fees. Until you get a larger account balance, the monthly fees vary between $1-$3. That is going to seem high. For example, it charges $2 a month for an IRA account. If you have $1,000 in that account, the annual fee is 2.4%. If you have $10,000, that fee drops to 0.24%. E-TradeIf you're going to buy stocks, ETFs, or even mutual funds, you're going to need a discount brokerage account to buy the investments. E-Trade isn't the cheapest discount broker. It charges $6.95 a trade, but gets a 4.5 rating out of 5 from NerdWallet, primarily because of its excellent mobile app, excellent customer support and large investment selection. The discount broker has two mobile apps that are both available on iOS and Android.The E-Trade mobile investing app provides options such as stock screening that help you find the right stocks to buy. It can even be accessed on Apple Watch. The second mobile app is OptionsHouse, the company's options specialist, that lets you make options trades on the go. It doesn't hurt that E-Trade's parent is E-Trade Financial (NASDAQ:ETFC), a company with an $11.4 billion market cap. * 4 Retail Stocks to Buy in Time for the Back-to-School Rush The only downside: you'll pay more per trade if you aren't an active trader. MintSource: Mike Mozart via Wikimedia (Modified)If you can't save any money, you won't be able to invest. That's where Mint.com comes into play. Mint is a free personal finance app from Intuit (NASDAQ:INTU) that helps users track their spending, create a budget, and generally gets you smarter about money. It even lets you know when bills are due and what you can afford to pay. Over 15 million people use Mint in the U.S. and Canada to keep their finances straight. Intuit uses this free app to inform you about its other products such as Turbo Tax, which cost money to use and are also very helpful for saving money. It's an excellent loss leader. It will put you on stronger financial footing if you use it on an ongoing basis. Motif InvestingYoung investors interested in investing apps might want to take a look at Motif Investing, the California tech startup that uses data science and automation to create thematic portfolios that its 350,000 customers can buy with a click of a button. CEO Hardeep Walia found a way to use data science to find the best investment themes and companies benefiting from those themes. If you want to bet on the next great biotech stock, Motif has a portfolio called Feeling Better About Biotech, a basket of up to 30 biotech stocks and ETFs that gives you an appropriate exposure to the industry. For as little as $300 in your trading account, you can own this portfolio of stocks. Motif also has an Impact account. For as little as $1,000 in your account, you can get a fully automated portfolio that aligns with your financial goals and values. The Impact account charges 0.25% annually while the trading account varies from free if you use a next market open trade to as high as $19.95 a trade depending on the type of portfolio you're building. * 7 Stocks Being Inflated by Low Rates If you're interested in owning one or two stocks, Motif is probably not for you. RobinhoodSource: via Robinhood BlogOf the apps listed in this article, Robinhood is the investing app most likely followed and used by millennials. Robinhood officially launched in December 2014. It provides commission-free investing in stocks, options, and cryptocurrencies. Since its founding Robinhood has grown to a customer base of over four million active users, many of them young investors; its average user is 32. Estimates suggest that Robinhood, which counts Snoop Dog as an investor, could be valued at as much as $10 billion. Robinhood came under scrutiny in 2018 when it tried to launch a checking account for its customers that would pay 3%, didn't charge any fees and was covered by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation. The program never got off. It is currently working with regulators to create a cash management plan that will get off the ground.In the meantime, the commission-free service for trading continues to gain popularity with investors. SoFiSource: Shutterstock Its official name at its founding in 2011 was Social Finance Inc. It made student loans. Eight years later, it still makes student loans but has expanded into other areas of financial services, including personal loans, mortgages, bank accounts, and investing products and services. On July 8, SoFi launched Stock Bits, a new service that allows investors to buy fractional shares of popular stocks. If you want to own a dollar's worth of 50 stocks, you now can. It's specifically designed for those who are new to investing. "People are told to 'buy what they like,' but when what they like costs over $100 or $1,000 per share, first-time investors are priced out," said Anthony Noto, CEO at SoFi. "Investing is a financial requirement for achieving financial independence, and it is our focus to remove the barriers to getting started by providing features like Stock Bits for SoFi Invest." * 7 Services Stocks to Buy for the Rest of 2019 SoFi had a challenging year in 2018. Laying off more than 7% of its staff due to weakness in its mortgage products, I believe Stock Bits could be an innovation that lifts the San Francisco financial services company to new heights. StashSource: Shutterstock The Stash Investment App was launched in October 2015. It's premise was simple: provide Americans with the tools, guidance and confidence to grow their savings. Almost four years later, Stash has more than two million people saving and investing using its investing app. For as little as $5, you can own fractional shares in companies you support and believe in. However, we're not done. It also allows you to invest in portfolios of stocks through ETFs for as little as $5. That means you can own some of the most popular ETFs for a fraction of what you'd pay to hold them on your own.The Money Under 30 website recently reviewed the Stash investing app, suggesting it is well made and well designed. Competing with Acorns for the attention of young investors, Stash charges $1 per month until you hit $5,000. It then charges 0.25% annually. In addition to the management fee Stash charges, you also pay the management fee of the ETFs. Like Acorns, it's an app that makes more sense when you get to $5,000 in your account. WealthsimpleSource: Shutterstock Wealthsimple is a Toronto-based robo-advisor that provides ready-made investment portfolios to people in Canada, the U.S., and the UK. Founded in 2014, it now controls 70% of the digital advisory space in Canada and is slowly making inroads in the U.S. where it launched in early 2017. At the end of March, Wealthsimple had CAD$4.3 billion in assets under management and more than 100,000 clients in the three countries where it operates.In March, the company launched Wealthsimple Trade, which provides commission-free investing in Canada for stocks and ETFs. It's the first company in Canada to do what Robinhood's doing in the U.S. It's managed to snag 25,000 users in the first four months of operation; the average age of its users is 31. Like Robinhood, a lot of its users are buying cannabis stocks. The banks are also popular, as are some of the big tech companies like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). * 8 Penny Stocks That Have Fallen From Grace Delivering an attractive and easy to use mobile app, expect Wealthsimple to make waves in the U.S. market in the next couple of years. At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Online brokerage stocks fell toward the lowest levels of the year Tuesday, after Raymond James analyst Patrick O'Shaughnessy cut his price targets given the recent sharp drop in Treasury yields. Shares of E-Trade Financial Corp. lost 1.3%, putting them on track for the lowest close since Jan. 2; TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. fell 0.3% toward the lowest close since Dec. 24; and Charles Schwab Corp. edged up 0.1%, but had fallen as much as 2.1% earlier to the lowest intraday price seen since Dec. 26. O'Shaughnessy cut his price target for E-Trade's stock to $57 from $60, for TD Ameritrade to $60 from $62 and for Schwab to $46 from $51. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell 3.6 basis points to 1.985%, which would be the first close below the 2.00% mark since Nov. 8, 2016. O'Shaughnessy said a lower interest rate environment weighs on net interest income. In addition, he said the continued decline in the yield curve, with the 10-year Treasury yield now below overnight rates, is likely weighing on securities re-investment yield for online brokers. Meanwhile, the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF slipped 0.2%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 31 points, or 0.1%.
A major brokerage launching cryptocurrency trading would provide a substantial amount of legitimacy for digital asset trading, reeling in bigger investors.
(Bloomberg) -- Shares of online brokers including TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. and E*Trade Financial Corp. slid after Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders proposed canceling the nation’s outstanding $1.6 trillion of student debt and offsetting the cost with a tax on Wall Street transactions.The Sanders plan would include a 0.5% tax on stock transactions, a 0.1% tax on bond trades and a .005% tax on derivatives transactions.The financial transaction tax (FTT) “boogeyman” appearing on the campaign trail is weighing on the group, Compass Point senior policy analyst Isaac Boltansky said via email. “Whether clients are interested or not in the student loan proposal, the use of the FTT as a pay-for signaled that the issue would play a meaningful role in the Democratic presidential conversation.”A new tax would probably hurt trading volume, Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Andrew Silverman said. A financial transaction tax may “cause the asset values of publicly offered stocks, bonds and futures to decline because the tax could cause demand to decline,” Silverman said.Even so, Silverman sees such a tax as unlikely to pass anytime soon, “and even then only if Congress moves significantly to the left and the president is a Democrat, too.”Shares of E*Trade fell as much as 3.7% Monday, to the lowest since March 22. TD Ameritrade dropped as much as 3.6%, to the lowest since January 2.Charles Schwab Corp. fell as much as 3.5%, to the lowest since December 26. Analysts have recently flagged Schwab’s interest-rate sensitivity, with Deutsche Bank earlier this month cutting its rating on the stock to hold. Deutsche Bank at that time kept TD Ameritrade and E*Trade rated buy, given their “better interest rate sensitivity profiles, leverage to customer trading, and at least a modest possibility of a merger scenario between the two.”Earlier in June, Cowen warned that the prospect of a financial transaction tax would get more attention ahead of the first Democratic presidential debate, presenting a recurring risk for exchanges and financial firms. Analyst Jaret Seiberg flagged candidates who’d previously called for a transaction tax, include Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Senator Elizabeth Warren. In May, Sanders had introduced legislation that would impose a tax on trades of all stocks, bonds and derivatives.Other stocks with declines on Monday included Tradeweb Markets Inc., down as much as 4.5%, Nasdaq Inc., with a drop of as much as 2%, and Virtu Financial Inc., down as much as 2.9%.To contact the reporter on this story: Felice Maranz in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Catherine Larkin at firstname.lastname@example.org, Scott SchnipperFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
