I'm very new to this...but a long time ago I got in on the free stock giveaway....trying to figure out how to actually "get it" and what to with it..I've posted this question before...
Yes, I also am the beneficiary of FREE shares.
I also wonder how many of us who received free shares are still holding the shares?
What's happening is absolutely fabulous. Wished all my stocks would perform like TZOO.
What we have here is unique. A very low float, not 2 million as some have said, but only 1.9 million shares. And a price that is skyrocketing. The more analysts (and Barrons's) try to douse it with sell recommendations, the more shorts jump on board. The shorts are essential for the stock to keep climbing and the shorts are coming in like bees to honey. So, this "crazy game" will continue. You guys with FREE shares, keep holding them.
I am so new to this...I thought hey free stock hey why not right?....I got some good info...I ahd no idea on exactly "how" to get my free shares...I own 20...I picked up that I need to send away for them...I got the form a few mins ago...I dunno what I'll do with the stock once I get it..I guess I'll hold on.
You need to request a certifcate from travelzoo. Go to the investor relations then shareholder services. You download the form and take it to most banks to get a medallion guarentee signature. Mail it to the address on the form and in 1 week you get your certificate. You can then take that to any brokerage and sell it.
