    RBS SHARES - Bargain at 15.8p year high of 427.5p

    If you are feeling really (really, really) brave, you can buy into RBS shares.

    These are massively undervalued due to lack of confidence, and may drop to nothing if the government nationalises RBS.

    However, if time heals all, this could be an amazing investment.

    REMEMBER : Never invest what you can't afford to lose.

    Example
    £200 buys you 1200 shares.
    If these go back up to £1 / share
    Sell 1200 shares @ £1 = £1200

    Not a bad profit for 1 year investment!!!

    If you feel brave, you can trade online at hoodlessbrennan.com/

    Each trade (buy or sell) costs just £8.

    Good luck!!!!

    Now at 14.5p share!

    not good for those who have rbs shares, this is really bad and you dont know when the shares will go back up. what happens if it nationalises.

    I think the price reflects the possibility of this bank being fully nationalised.

    ...and for that reason.......I'm out

    RBS was nationalised in October 2008. The state owns over 50%.

    70% now. news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm

    haha, very funny. heat added, it is an excellent chance to cash in but the risks are not small ... as the OP says.

    Worth a go if you are a gambler

    Thanks for the information. As it's more of a financial tip rather than a specific item deal I've moved it to MISC, but I've copied link into OP as well. :thumbsup:

    year high was 358 according to bloomberg

    like the poster said. result is a binomial outcome i.e. you make a lot of money or lose everything there is no between at these current levels.

    As I said - you have to brave (or foolish) if you can afford to loose a few hundred quid, you could clean up.

    RBS is part nationalised at present, as there are still private investors with stock options, and it is still trading on the London Stock Exchange. (LSE)

    If full nationlisation kicks in, all stock options are deleted. You can then sue the government for compensation, but don't hold your breath (Norther Rock springs to mind)

    Besides, govt does not WANT to own RBS, it wants to control it. Then when the economy recovers (?!?!) they will sell for a profit. I intend to do the same....

    Good luck!

    (( For a laugh - PRETEND you brought £200 of shares, and keep posting to this forum over the coming months to see if you made cash or lost!!! ))

    Just bought 3000 shares.
    Lets see what happens!

    I just bought 10,000 the share price has actually gone up now.

    may invest in another 10k shares:thinking:

    It's tempting...

    However - I don't think the government own 70% because they think its a good investment...

    Is interactive investor not a better site to use?

    I think these are effected by the new selling short rules coming back in, I was doing some work with some City traders at the close of last week and even they don't have any idea what's going to happen.

    By the end of this week, we will know if it's all going bump. If still trading by Friday, expect a steady increase over the coming months...

    Good luck to those who have invested!

    Rep please if you become millionaires!!!

    And your rationale is sound.

    I once had £30K of Railtrack shares. The governement decided to compulsary give me about £2K for them instead.

    Once bitten, twice shy.

    I dont blame you, and would prob be the same...

    I'm not in for anywhere near that much ~ more like £500. Put in over the months instead of savings.

    I don't mind losing it, but would love to make some...

    I took a HBOS employee bonus as shares. My £1k is now about £50.

    my av was £1 on RBS, lost 3K on LLOY.

    thats the market for you.

    A friend of mine thought there was a similar no chance of loss opportunity when Northern Rock shares were really cheap. He said someone he had known for years who worked in a bank was buying shares and everyone in the bank was doing the same. Almost had me convinced to jump on board. Glad I didnt.

    As others have said. Could be a gain. But its a huge gamble and dont do it if you could not afford to lose the money. Like my friend has.

    I'd considered this at lunchtime, but how do you actually buy shares?!

    Easiest way for Joe Public to buy shares is online through a broker. Martin Lewis recommends Hoodless Brennan, who I use.

    It costs £8 per transaction.

    Account can be opened immediately, and you can transfer money into your trading account using a debit card.

    Shares currently at around 13p

    So anyone who brought £200 at 10p yesterday, would now be up £60.

    Is that another £8 when you sell them too? Rep left for the answer though - thanks

    I apologies for my ignorance as i'm not a market trader, but I thought I heard a while ago that due to short selling, you couldnt not sell shares in finiacial institutions for a min of 90 days :?

    Do you not have to get your details verified by sending them your passport or driving licence? This can take up to 2 weeks to process apparently. I wanted to buy yesterday, but this factor put me off. Can anyone help?? I thought my debit card could verify my identify??

    Depends if they can verify you online.

    They (HB) couldn't do that for me as I'm not on the electoral roll as I've been in my address 6 months or so. My mum opened one instantly though - but then she's been in the same house for 10+ years.

    Yes HB effectively do a credit check on you, even though it's not for credit! Just to prove your credentials.

    I opened mine instantly, and has first shares purchased within 10mins.

    It is £8 buy / £8 sell. So you loose £16 on each complete transaction (buy & sell)

    I would view in in terms of ... Only risk as much as you would place on a horse race. If you have been listening to the news theres a chance of nationlisation which would mean you get nuthin. But theres also a chance that all will be ok and you could be a big winner.
