  1. Hi everyone I have an Energy Company giving data shares to a Credit Agency but the shares are not showing the outstanding amount or reduction in what's been paid every month. I was under the impression that to avoid breaching GDPR certain parts of the data share should include this to show a true reflection of the account and so other potential lenders could see where the account was up to etc. Some months inbetween others they wouldn't give any information! When I queried this with the Energy Company they then started showing the shares as an 'i' which I believe stands for Arranged Payment. Ok, so does that mean they can just show a status of AP every month still with no current balance and outstanding balance? How are other lenders meant to see when this will end? They also shared information via the Credit Agency during the dispute I raised that said I was responsible for the supply at the address with incorrect dates. As that's been sent to the Credit Agency in response to my dispute, would that breach GDPR?
  2. Can I just ask about this process? I currently have 250 shares (santander) that are on my Equiniti shareview account online. Under my account it shows them as "Banco San SA Ord EUR0.50 CDI" I go to the buy/sell section and search for Santander but 3 share descriptions come up? The closest match is "Banco San SA EUR0.50 REGD". Would I sell as that 1? The others shown are: "Santander UK Plc 8.625pct perpetual non-cum" "Santander UK Plc 10 3/8% perpetual non-cum Pref GBP1" *Actually as I type this up, I see the "Banco San SA Ord EUR0.50 CDI" is the only 1 that says "Santander nominee service" when I click sell, the other 2 have "share certificate", so it must be the first* Other questions.... When I fill in the details to sell, does that mean I get the actual share price for my shares the moment I click to sell them? And also, on 1 of the sell pages do I get an option to select how many shares I want to sell? At the moment the shares are worth £1200. I would want to sell half of my shares, so £600? Minus their fees? Also what would their fees be? Thanks and sorry if these seem like newbie questions but I have never dealt with shares before
  3. I was looking into selling a few shares that had little value and noticed that brokers were charging £20+ for execution only, which was a good chunk of the value. I then looked into who the registrar was for the shares and they offer a basic sell option for £5. So the lesson i learnt was that sometimes, it is worth looking at whether the registrar offers a better deal than you can get elsewhere. Most registrars seem to offer a cheaper execution only sale service and they seem to be mostly cheaper. Because they hold the register of shareholders they also have your details.
  4. Good morning , could someone please tell me if shares are bought for me, from money in a SIPP, should the trustees of signed the share form. I have removed my personal details, gut were it states the detail's of trustees is blank. Thank you.
  5. Many people will have been watching Tesco's recent debacle. I have lost over £5000 with the share price fall, over the last 4 months. Tough, you may say. The reality is that I bought my shares based on the financial accounting data published by Tesco in their annual report. Yesterday, I watched the new CEO Dave Lewis, parachuted in from Unilever. He said the "accounting errors" appear to have been undertaken for several years. They have declared £265 million in profits they actually don't have, and won't have. A definition of fraud is: " the intentional misrepresentation or concealment of an important fact upon which the victim is meant to rely, and in fact does rely, to the harm of the victim". I'd say that is exactly what Tesco have done. I'm tempted to issue a county court claim against them, for fraud. Any thoughts, please?
  6. Shares in UK housebuilders fell sharply after the Bank of England said it would scale back its Funding of Lending Scheme. Shares in Britain's housebuilders fell sharply on Thursday after the Bank of England unexpectedly scaled back a scheme to boost mortgage lending. The central bank said it would refocus the Funding for Lending scheme on loans to small firms in the face of rising house price inflation. The news had an immediate impact on shares in the housebuilding sector, with Barratt Developments, Britain's biggest housebuilder by volume, tumbling 9.6pc, Taylor Wimpey dropping 7.8pc and Persimmon falling 6.3pc. The whole housebuilding sector was dragged down by the surprise announcement with Berkeley Group, Crest Nicholson, Redrow, Countrywide, Galliford Try, and Bellway all losing ground.

  7. I have worked for my employer for 12 years and as they were the only trading Ltd company of a PLC listed on AIM I started to receive several share option packs over the years as part of an Enterprise Management Initiative, however due to the price listed on AIM these were never exercised. About 2 years ago the company swapped all my old share options of 19.6p to equivalent number of 10p options. I thought this was generous and signed the relevant agreement but to this date neither myself of colleagues ever received countersigned copies back. Last year we were subject to a reverse takeover (unsure if reverse bit is relevant) by a company who now trade on AIM using 'our old account' but with a new name- essentially they needed funds from the markets to start a new overseas project and reversing into a PLC was easiest method. A retired Director I am friendly with told me the takeover was completed at 6.75p per share. I have had no correspondence regarding my share options since the takeover and when I ask my MD he states he doesn't know and he cannot get answers from the PLC Company Secretary or so he tells me - could he be lying? The Ltd Company has now been put up for sale by the new PLC as we are not part of their core business. Should the new PLC have offered me something for my options or swap for an equivalent share scheme or benefit in kind?, do they now even exist as the listing on AIM is under a different name to my previous employer? Any help would be appreciated as I am worried if we are sold quickly by the new PLC that my chance may be lost
  8. The process of returning RBS to private hands has started. Investors should bide their time, Questor says. Stephen Hester’s imminent departure from the helm of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has come as a bit of a shock to the City. He was well regarded, having undertaken one of the most difficult jobs in banking over the last five years with relative success. The move appears to be political and, as an investor, this form of interference is always a concern. However, the bank has been roiled by political interference since the credit crunch hit, with politicians constantly moving goalposts. It is nothing new. There is speculation that Mr Osborne is considering Andrew Tyrie’s proposals of splitting RBS into a so-called “good bank” and “bad bank”, which is opposed by Mr Hester. Mr Tyrie made the proposal as chair of the parliamentary commission on banking standards. However, the departure of Mr Hester appears to be a prelude to the bank returning to private hands, something that is likely to take years. It appears likely that Chancellor George Osborne will unveil plans for the privatisation of the government’s 81pc stake in RBS at his Mansion House speech on June 19. However, it is also likely that the 39pc stake in Lloyds banking Group will be sold off first.

  9. A sale of some of the taxpayer's stake in Lloyds Banking Group has come a step closer after the state-backed lender's share price yesterday came close to reaching the government's minimum "break-even" price. Shares in Lloyds rose above 60p for the first time in more than 12 months, trading as high as 60.4p, just 0.8p below the taxpayer's minimum sale price of 61.2p after the bank confirmed it was likely to make a full-year profit in 2013. The state holds a 39pc stake in Lloyds following the lender's £25bn bailout in 2008, but yesterday's share price rise raises the prospect of a potential disposal of some of the holding in the near future. Sir Bischoff, 72, who announced his retirement as Lloyds chairman this week, described the surge in the bank's share price as "very pleasing". "It's a reflection of the huge progress this business has made in the last year," said Sir Win, who announced he will step down as chairman by next May at the latest. The rise in the shares followed confirmation by Antonio Horta-Osorio, chief executive of Lloyds, that the bank would make its first full-year profit since 2010. "We expect this [the restructuring the bank] to enable us to return to profitability this year and to grow our core business, to realise our full potential to deliver strong stable and sustainable returns for you, the shareholders, and to allow UK taxpayers’ investment in the Group to be repaid," said Mr Horta-Osorio. Mr Horta-Osorio's own annual bonus is linked to selling a third of this holding at an average price of more than 61.2p by 2018. An additional condition would allow him to receive the award if the bank's share price exceeds 73.6p, the average price at which the taxpayer bought Lloyds shares at the time of its 2008 bailout, by the same date.

  10. Hi, just wondered if anyone knew what you could expect to get if you sold 100 Santander shares. I know the price varies from day to day, but a ballpark figure would be okay. I've looked on the internet but can't believe that what I think would be the selling price, actually is, if you see what I mean! TIA
  11. Shares in crisis-ridden Spanish bank Bankia plunged again as details of a public rescue exposed the extent of its problems. Shares fell 25pc to 41 euro cents in Madrid after the bank and its parent company BFA said it had received almost €18bn (£15bn) to bolster its balance sheet. The bailout was funded by a eurozone rescue loan after the region’s members were forced to step in when it became clear Spain alone could not deal with the crisis facing its lenders. The rescue will dilute the value of Bankia’s existing shares, involving the conversion of €10.7bn of “contingent convertible bonds” into equity. CNMV, the Spanish stock exchange regulator, said Bankia would be suspended from the IBEX-35 index of leading shares from January 2. Earlier in the week Spain’s state-backed Fund for Orderly Bank Restructuring said Bankia had a negative value of €4.15bn, while BFA had a negative value of €10.4bn.

  12. The troubled firms shares are now worth only 1p http://news.sky.com/story/978690/jjb-shares-collapse-as-it-loses-funding-fight
  13. I had about £200 worth of EGG shares, when I was in a better financial place, but I had forgotten all about them. They changed hands I think to Prudential, and a firm called Selftrade kept them for safekeeping. I have now sent me an email saying that I am overdrawn by £87.50 and they will sell my shares and take the money out of that. I don't understand how this can happen, I have never used them to sell or buy shares, and they say it might be to do with fees over 3 years.... Don't know what they are talking about? But can they take money from shares that I own, and can they sell them without my permission.......
