While Public offers thousands of Common Stocks and Funds, not every stock is available on the Public platform. There are a few reasons the stock you’re searching for might not be on Public.

Unsupported Security:

In the Stock Market, there are many different types of securities ranging from Common Stock and Preferred Stock, to Warrants and Options. Supported stocks on Public include thousands of Common Stocks and Funds. Different security types, such as Warrants and Options, are not yet available.

Penny Stocks or OTC Stocks:

Public does not offer Penny Stocks or stocks that are listed on the over-the-counter ("OTC") market, due to the risk associated with these types of investments. Penny stocks or companies that are listed on the OTC typically lack reliable information and liquidity and we strongly recommend learning more about the risks from the SEC here.

Corporate Actions:

Corporate actions sometimes result in new ticker symbols, making the stock a little harder to find if you aren’t familiar with the new symbol. Corporate actions can be anything from a Stock Split to Mergers and Acquisitions!

Sometimes, different types of securities can be held in your account due to corporate actions. If this is the case, our licensed brokerage team is always on standby to help via the app’s Live Chat or Email at support@public.com!

The great news is that we can always look into these stocks for you and see exactly what the case is for a specific stock! If you ever have a stock you’d like to see us add to the Public platform, you can let us know that, too! We love hearing from you and are always looking to improve, so please don’t hesitate to give us a shout with your ideas!

If you ever have questions, the team is always here for you, so feel free to give us a shout on the app’s Live Chat or via email at support@public.com!
