    I have bought SIC shares for the past one or two months and looking at their previous track records, I have not regret of being part of the SIC shareholder.
    Question:
    Is it possible to have my name published as shareholder?

      Well, SIC as a company doesn't publicly publish a list of all their shareholders because it's quite impractical to do so since there are so many of them. They however publish the 20 largest shareholders in their annual reports in which only two individuals appear. BTW, you'd need at least 1,060,000 shares to make the list.

    Question:
    I have bought three shares namely GCB, SIC and FANMILK through calbroker.
    I have been reading news papers, listening to Business news but I have not had the chance to communicate with any broker as to further feedback to what I should do.
    How do I get connected to my broker for information or advice?
