I Hope Standard Life .......

Recommended Posts

If you instructed Standard Life to sell your share entitlement (you needed to tick the right boxes and return a form before flotation) then your cheque will be in the post soon.

You may find you need more than 908 shares to take the kids to Florida. ;)

You are right ianbe, 908 shares on their own were not enough, but all i had to do was add the £1500 to it that i was going to spend on a Spanish holiday and it worked out nicely.

........have sold my 908 shares!

I did instruct them to but....how do i find out?

:lol:

According to Yahoo the current price is 257p on July 14th when this was posted the closing price was 239p therefore;

908*2.39=£2,170

908*2.57=£2,333

You're out of pocket by £163 in other words it has increased by about 7.5% since your selling point!

:huh::blink::lol:

Never mind, eh?

I think it's worse than that.

I believe members who took the cash immediately had their shares priced at 230p. More like £245 down on the current price.

There's also around 5% annual dividend expected. And bonus shares if you'd hung onto them.

Seems like that loss of £163 upset you ;)

It's like being back at work with all the wind ups that go on. LOL (I'm on leave this week)

Notice a hint of sarcasm in my previous reply.

Otherwise my main message to you all is....stop it already!

Find out how many shares have been issued. Then write to all the shareholders and ask them how many shares they hold. Subtract the second number from the first number. If there is a difference of 908, you shares havn't been sold yet.

Apologies in advance to CO for accidental use of the word 'sheeple'. ;)

:lol: I should think so too!

BTW I notice you've failed to remind a number of posters about the requirement to post the IMHO acronym every time they express an opinion. Come on now, I'm looking to you to be more even-handed!

Yes, I still have mine. Along with my pension strategy, I'll hold until we get some sort of repeat of dot.com thing and alarm bells start ringing or someone tries to take them over.

I read a bank put a tragt of 280p on SL the other day. Can't remember who though.

I've not received anything after sending off my cheque has anyone yet received there allocations etc

Not had anything since the float, but I'm not in a hurry to sell. Try the SL web site, there's a a link to the share dealing web site and contact details stating pretty much what you need to know. They're usual a friendly, helpful bunch their so I'm certain they can help you.

You should have received them by now, BrickingIt. I got mine at the beginning of August. Contact the company using the hotline sent to you with your original application.
