Almost there

After using Stake for a few months now I have to say that I’m really happy after switching from my Commsec International account. The transfer of my portfolio from Commsec International to stake was easy and within I think the two weeks that was stated. The ui is super polished and although the app is not as feature rich as some other offerings, what it does it does well. With each update more features are added, such as dark mode and the new ASX update means I can have my ASX and US shared in the same app which was so cumbersome at Commsec. One issue that I have was when I trialled Stake Black and found that the financial info was lacking, at the moment only a few quarters of earnings are available with no annual sorting feature. Even if they replaced the quarterly reports with annual ones that would make more sense. Most finance websites like Morningstar, CNBC etc. have up to seven years of earnings for free before you need to subscribe and Stake has just over one year that you have to pay for. Anyways great broker, I’m super happy so far.

Stake takes a nice stake of your spread

This app started off good for me, when I only had a little bit to invest, and didn’t understand the US market very well. However, it soon became highly apparent that Stake does not get you efficient prices. If I put in a “market” order for a fractional share, I can be guaranteed that if it’s a BUY, my by price will be much higher than the last traded price, while if it’s a SELL, I will get a price much lower than the last traded price. In addition, their limit orders are terrible, whereby you cannot leave a limit order over more than one day (it will automatically cancel), while they do not provide any sort of market depth info, which means you are trading blind. Ultimately, I do not feel like this app has the investors best interests at heart, but rather, that the app is designed to make big fat commissions off your trades as they take your order and sell it to a bigger broker who simply offers them every available trade that you want to make, but offers it to Stake at a better price, which they pawn off to you with their margin on top. Decent app for someone with limited knowledge of the market and not much to invest. But no good for someone looking to buy shares efficiently, and in terms of honesty with which they make a profit off you, they are probably less honest than your standard Commsecs given they way they profit off your trades. Always beware of “no commission” platforms.

A nightmare come tax time

Update: the transactions weren’t showing up because Stake recently implemented a new system to generate tax reports directly but these reports only included data from 2020. The person who helped me was able to send me a separate csv file with the missing transactions which I uploaded to Sharesight and cleared the invalid holdings. When I got around to emailing Stake they responded in a timely manner and I was able to lodge my tax returns this afternoon. Thanks!

I’ve had a great experience trading with Stake up until recently when trying to do my taxes. When I downloaded my transaction summary report to upload to Sharesight, I noticed that a couple of my “buy” transactions were missing from my summary report, even though I can still see them in my transaction history on Stake. As a result, these came up as “invalid holdings” on Sharesight and I am unable to proceed.

I have tried to reach out to Stake in the past via email but they don’t seem to check them. Stake if you are reading this please help me rectify this issue. Happy to update my review once this issue is resolved.
