I posted the following in another thread:
The digusting part is that those who paid for Compets at 100 PED through the auction, or at a premium through the shop have essentially bankroled what Compet is today - yet an early sell does not even 'realise' the PEDs generated by their capital injection during that time they were held.
If you were to phone your stock broker up an tell him to buy £1000 of shares in company X. You would find your bank account minus £1000 and in return you would either have a nice piece of paper or an electronic share deed to the value of £1000 of shares.
If you went and knocked on company X's door and asked to see your £1000 investment, after they had picked themselves off the floor (after falling over laughing), they would inform you that the money is theirs to spend how they wished, in return you have a very nice piece of paper.
This piece of paper is yours to do what you wished with. You can either hold on to it and hope for dividends and/or a rise in stock valuation, or you can sell it at a profit or a loss. This is your own choice which can be influenced by your broker going sell sell or buy buy, or just your personal opinion after looking at company X's statements.
Once you have given your money to a company its no longer your money, you have the nice piece of paper instead and you have to hope that the piece of paper ends up worth more than the cost of the ink and the paper its made with. You can't go to company X "Sorry I sold my deeds y months ago thinking you would go bust, can I have some cash pretty please as an early investor?"
Many companies will not pay dividends for the first couple of years as all the money is reinvested. If you buy shares you can only pray that you have not flushed your money down the toilet and stand prepared to take the rough times with the smooth.
Thank you for the Shares/Investments 101 primer... I'm well acquainted with how this works.
But there is a pertinent point that is being overlooked."The initial deed payment will be done February the 25th and will then continue on a monthly basis.
The ComPet deed revenues have been accumulated per month since the launch of the app."
Deed revenues are paid out on a monthly basis and have been accumulated on a monthly basis.
This has been occuring since the launch of the app, ie: approx 12 months.
Buying a deed before the first payout date you receive the deed payout for 12 months, thereafter for 1 month.
Not because the revenue hasnt been collected, not because it hasnt been declared, it is not reinvested, or realised in another form, not for any other reason except the deed ownership has not been tracked.
That is the point. There is no real-world stock/investment situation where this occurs.
No problem with opinions regarding poor investments or associated risk, but facts are facts - and im simply airing them.
