Do I get dividends and voting rights on fractional stocks?

You get dividends on all your fractional investments. For example, if you own 50.5 shares of a company and it announces a $10 per share dividend, you will get $505. The only restriction is on pay-outs of fractional money (i.e. values less than a cent), so if you own 0.0005 of a share, you can’t be paid half a cent as a dividend in the event of a $10/share dividend announcement. You don't get voting rights on fractions of stock you own. For example, if you own 50.5 shares of a company, you will have voting rights on 50 shares.
