I only have the free shares, ive never liked the risk of buying shares.. even though i thought it was impossible to lose out as staff? Our shares cant sell for less than they were bought.

I am disappointed because I was looking to sell my shares just before all this went down for a bit of a treat. Not worth selling now..

A question .. 

 I am now entitled to buy shears with the bonus thing.   

Say I get 300 as a bonus.  Can I buy shares through the scheme at the current market value

I believe they may be at an all time low price now and may not get much lower.  Following that they can only rise in value.     

 Would now be a good time to buy through the scheme we have.  Would I get good value for money. 

 I dont know much about the shares market and need advise from people who already hold them.

Wheelspin  aren't you in Eire? What share scheme is or was it? If I am correct and you are in Eire would you be buying UK shares or something else?

Personally I am not certain they have hit rock bottom yet because
a)  I can't help but wonder what effect the SFO investigation results will have, that's assuming it isn't a prolonged investigation,
b) what the year-end results and dividend will be.
c) are there any more skeletons to be discovered?


If you think they have reached their lowest then buy but I'd suggest you buy them in electronic form rather than certificate form. This is for two reasons, first and foremost, if they start to plummet again you should be able to get rid of, or buy, electronically held shares instantly during trading hours. Secondly electronic trading is cheaper than trading certificates

Also DO look into the dealing fees and account management fees, they vary from broker to broker, whilst all brokers seem to charge dealing fees some do not charge fees for electronic share holding accounts.

Thanks for you replies.

 It may work out better to buy them in February then as they may lower again. 

We have 3 options here in Ireland with the bonus scheme from a bit of research.  I would hazard a guess that its the same in the UK.   

1. 100% in TESCO PLC shares
2. 50% cash and 50% in shares
3.100% cash

PAY CONTRIBUTIONS
You may not invest in the pay contributions if you do not select to use any of your bonus to purchase shares.
The maximum amount of pay contributions you can invest in any year can never exceed the lower of
1. The amount you choose to invest from your bonus in sheares or
2. 7.5% of your annual basic salary.

Sorry if it's been mentioned before, but how do you check how many shares you have? Also, how do you manage said shares?

Arlo, in addition to Oliver's answer, I have never seen the shares show up in my account until trading has closed i.e. after 4.30pm. generally they haven't shown until the evening or, I think, sometimes the following Monday.

Your "contribution" will generally show up one week after payday.

I normally use the shareview website rather than the esp portal and the above relates to what I see via shareview though both 'routes' probably end up in the same 'place'.
