Hi When the Halifax was taken over by BOS I, like most mortgage holders received 200 shares. I now have 209 as I elected to receive shares instead of a dividend. In their latest bumf there is a form to go back to receiving a dividend or continue to receive shares. As our mortgage will be paid off in approx 7 years when our endownments mature and we will most likely have to sell the shares to make up the shortage, should I elect to receive a dividend, or continue to receive shares. In other words what is considered the best option, shares or cash. These are the only shares that I and my partner have.
Although I may have some Asda shares in a years time if I join their share
scheme. I missed out on this years joining by 3 weeks as I just started
working for them at the end of Oct and the date was 8th Oct.
