This is purely a poll of the residents here, and should NOT been seen as an endorsement by me, the forum or anyone to buy. Just interested to see if people are considering this.
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
was considering it, yes

I've never bought shares before but a bit of googling shows good returns predicted. How does one sell shares if they've been bought without a broker?

your bank will sell them on your behalf, but you'll get a better deal using one of the online share selling companies. They'll all advertise a "Royal Mail sell on" facility as soon as the shares go live.
As a student I took on a IR£100k facility to buy shares when Telecom Eireann (Eircom) went public. The shares were security for the loan, and I only drew-down funds to pay for the allocation (IIRC I got £23,000 worth, and they shot up 18% in the first week, so I sold them only within 4 days and made a tidy profit). Best summer job ever!
Sounds good. And are you going for these shares?
Financial commitments of this nature require a "family discussion", so I'll speak with SWMBO first, but I expect I will.
I wouldn't, but then I don't live there any more.
Personally I hope they get renationalised with no compensation some time in the future when the Govt of the time see sense. Along with Buses,Trains, water and electricity/gas.
“Out beyond ideas of wrong and right, there is a field.
I'll meet you there."
I expect that it will be very oversubscribed, so even if you put down for £10,000 worth ( the max any individual can request), you'll end up getting only a handful, so not worth the effort.
The employees at Royal Mail should do pretty well out of it though, even if the shares in a few years' time are the only souvenir of the job they once had.
