The 10 Most Traded Stocks or Companies on eToro’s Global Platform

Posted by under Investing, News and Events . Published: May 29, 2020

Social trading and multi-asset brokerage company, eToro has recently launched commission-free trading for US stocks to the Asia-Pacific.

This zero-commission offering applies to all stocks on its platform that are traded on the Nasdaq and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). And this makes them the first platform to offer commission-free stocks and fractional shares globally.

Last 2018, eToro first shifted its stock offering in Europe from CFDs to ownership of underlying stock. And then a year later, eToro introduced zero-commission stocks, sparking a new era in online trading.

At that point forward, traders from Europe can own underlying stocks from any global exchanges offered on eToro; and users under ASIC regulation can do the same with stocks traded on Wall Street.

eToro offers thousands of stocks from 17 global exchanges on its platform, and it’s expected that the company’s stock offering will continue to grow in the future.

Alongside the growth in stock selection, traders and investors have also began putting more emphasis on stock investments, as the number of stock trades on eToro grew sixfold throughout 2019 and Q1, 2020.

Furthermore, as of Q1 2020, stocks account for nearly a third of all trades carried out on eToro, which have interestingly grown from previous quarters despite the coronavirus pandemic.

Most popular stocks on eToro

As mentioned, the introduction of ownership of underlying assets and 0% commission, people have been trading and investing stocks more on eToro. And below are the most popular stocks since these offerings started.

Tesla
Leading the list is this well-known electric carmaker, which between 2019-2020 became the most valuable automotive company in US history. One of the reasons the Tesla stock is so popular on eToro is its high volatility.

On the one hand, it is a carmaker, positioning it in the traditional industry sector. On the other, it is a tech company, led by one of the world’s most famous and somewhat controversial innovators, Elon Musk.

This unique combination of factors, coupled with its overall positive trajectory in recent years, has made the TSLA stock more than twice as popular as the next stock on the list, Apple.

FAANG Stocks
Short for Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google, this group is very popular with tech investors around the world.

On eToro, the situation is not very different, as three of the FAANG stocks are in the top five most traded stocks on eToro.

Tech has been a very popular sector in markets in recent years, as giants such as Amazon, Apple and Microsoft have become some of the most valuable publicly-traded companies in the world.

Beyond Meat
The meat substitute giant went public in July 2019 and has remained in the top 10 on eToro ever since.

Does this mean that a lot of traders and investors on eToro are vegan? There’s no way to tell, but it surely looks like many believe that the company has growth potential in the future.
