So Share Purchase Plan's - Company capital rasining offering shares to all shareholders at a discounted price to a maximum normally of $15,000.
As the discounted rate is normally pretty good, When your trading shares should you allways "leave one behind" in your portfolio? - thus gaining eligibility for SPP.
i.e first time buying a certain stock - Buy 10,000 BSL - Sell 9,999 BSL, leaving 1 in your portfolio.
If you do this for every stock you purchase and sell (first time only), your portfolio will have a single share in many Company's. Any of them undertake a SPP that you fancy, then your in.
#1 question - any reason why this wouldn't work?
#2 question - do people actualy do this?
