There is only one way to sell fractional shares which should be through a major brokerage firm. The firm could join them with other fractional shares to attain the whole share. However, selling the fractional shares might take time especially when it does not have high demand in the marketplace.
Apparently, not everyone wishes to own fractional shares. Specifically, they are aware of facing inadvertent reasons like stock splits. The example is in this condition; an investor owns 225 shares of ABC stock priced at $12 per share. After a 3 for 2 stock split, they will end up with 337½. Then the price of the share would be $8 per share.
Meaning, if demand is high for ABC stock in the marketplace, it would be easier for them to get a brokerage firm who is willing to take them. Or in other cases, they could still find another brokerage firm willing to sell another half share. Thus, they could get the total number of 338 shares. The best epitome of these shares are happening for real was in November 2019. In that time, Interactive Brokers was the first major online broker that offered fractional shares trading. Then, on January 29, 2020, Fidelity followed Interactive Brokers. The company announced that it offered these shares trading of equities.
However, this kind of shared division does not happen anywhere. High-priced stocks like Alphabet, Amazon and Google often experience fractional shares. For example, starting with $1000 to invest, it means that they cannot buy a full share of stock. Therefore, they need to find a brokerage firm that could sell these shares. In this case, they could invest half of the money in one-third of a share of Amazon.
