      I think you should read book on how to trade stock. If I should recommend you, I did say you should read on "learn to earn, one up on wall street"- by Peter Lynch and also rich dad and poor dad by Robert kiyosaki. Spend your time reading this so that you wouldn't invest wrongly.

      Hello Mr. Ike-obi,

      I will advise you to go through your broker when submitting your E-dividend form.

      The registrar liaises more or faster with your broker than your bank...

      Please go through the more...


      Write a letter to Veritas telling them that you may report them to SEC if they do not comply within the stipulated time...

      Thank you...
