No. Any broker should fill an order for one share at the same price and with the same speed as any other order. See post #20 to see several two share orders bring filled at normal prices.
You need a new broker. Right away.
Don't blame the order size for delayed execution when the trader used a limit order, and the market wasn't willing to meet their price.
It's the market maker's job to fill your order, and they will. Somewhat unintuitively, it's the really large orders that are harder to fill.
It's super easy. I put in an order for share and it's executed immediately. Every online broker does this. If you're talking about "full service" (I.e., expensive) broker assisted firms, you may be right.

That's correct. If you owned or purchased the shares yesterday, May 7th, you get the dividend. If you buy shares on or after May 8th, you don't. AAPL closed on May 7th at $592.33. When the stock opens for trading on May 8th, it's price will be adjusted down $3.29 (the amount of the dividend).
No. The system is designed so you can't take advantage of it that way. May 12th is the "Record date". If you are on record as a shareholder on May 12th, you get the dividend. May 8th is the "Ex-dividend" date. If you buy shares on or after May 8th, you don't get the dividend because you won't be on record as of May 12th. Not to worry, though, the stock price on May 8th is reduced by the amount of the dividend. So buyers on May 8th don't get the dividend, but they also buy...
