So who is the big institutional buyer who is buying this lot - they are not going to sell on the 27th that is for sure?

Hi all   I'm new to online trading and decided to buy a few shares in Aveng NPL, it was really cheap and i thought it would be a good and inexpensive way for me to learn how share trading works. A few days back I've received an Election NIL notice detailing shares for  Take up value of 10c. Currently the share price is only 6c .  I've tried old faithful (Google) however i could not get an explaination showing me an example of what this means.   What does his mean?  Hoping someone would be so kind to help this newbie out?

Good long term results vs index benchmark - some classic comments - plus a dollop of refreshing(?) honesty about getting things wrong - or at least having to wait longer for returns to emerge. But most important of all - the price you pay for assets is the one risk reducing step that really counts. I think I need to remember that.   
Stay away from derivatives.
Good morning all. My name is Santosh. I am new on this Community. Trading Sibanye today. Any input, insight or shared ideas?
I find the fact that I cannot draw freehand lines in the new interactive charting very irritating. Can you please add this feature?

Has anyone actually been successful in getting UCount to include the points on the monthly statement?   I have sent several emails, and have phoned their call centre many times, gone through their excessive, painful security checks over and over to no avail. The last response from them was "Due to the sensitive nature of your request, we are unable to give you an electronic response. Please provide us with a suitable time when we may contact you".   There is nothing sensitive about asking them to do their jobs! Their internal processes need to be fixed.   They never responded when I provided them with a suitable time.

Looking at the NPletter trading price - this is not a ship people want to stay on - and aton is seething over the nonsense of Mur so unless the Board does some kind of a leap of logic- this is all looking like its going no-where. At least I am happy about getting out of my property shares when I did and getting into CTA at a keen price - the latter well so far( chuckle)
Jaah its is TFIA discount...
How do i connect my ucount to my ost account ?

....although, come to think of it - maybe the R10.00 is only a TFIA discount.  And surely there is something to do with having an Investment / Trading account linked back to an Actual Bank Account / FICA etc....???   Although - upon querying this around our office, some wit gave an his answer as "the reason why Standard Bank dont do this, is because it would then be Simpler, Better, Faster"....lol

Just a thought, and am not sure if this would work for you - but why not run them as separate accounts under your main account, so you only pay your one "main" fee?  I have my main "investment" account, a second "trading" account, a TFIA for myself and then two TFIAs for my two daughters.  But all under my main account login.  I pay R99.00 a month for my main account and then I only pay an additional R 10.00 each for my two daughters TFIAs.  Although agree in principle - why not offer incentive to have more accounts....
Your contract notes go back about a year I think: My Account / Contract Notes.  If desperate you could access your Monthly Statements.  This is a pain, but at least gives you Buy and Sells.

When one opts for scrip dividend instead of a cash dividend, is the divi tax deducted at source before the scrip is issued? If not, how does such a transaction affect the capital gains tax declared when the shares are sold at some future date (after being held for more than 3 years)? Perhaps one could assume that the shares would be regarded as having a cost price of zero effectively showing a 100% capital gain when they are sold.

I put this question to Graham K and Joseph Busha the other night -on stockwatch and there was really a dammed if you do and probably dammed if you don't reply from them - clearly value loss is the order to the day here - This makes it a real gamble - but hey I thought I had bought in at the bottom - forgetting that the only value for a share that you can be 100% sure of is - ZERO...

I run( well that is me flattering myself ) four portfolios on this site - one is for my wife and the other two for myself and a family trust - plus there is a TFIA. Why does OST not offer a discount for my wife's portfolio monthly charge - the trust recieves one but that is because it is under my name. You'd a thought there would be some kind of family deal for a couple?
Its not anything to do with the Swiss withholding rate - its SARS. You will no longer have to go through the hassle of reclaiming tax here.
