I take it you hold the share certificates?

It's my understanding that you require a stockbroker to sell these for you, you should shop around to see who charges the least, but it also reputable.

You'll have to send them the share certs to complete the transaction.

How do you know you hold shares?

Are you going off a statement of some sort or is this figure just in your head?

You'll need to find the original documentation of your ownership.

dont sell them , vodafone shares are at a yearly low right now so it has plenty of upside , its a very sound company which pays a decent dividend , telecom companys are sort of rescession proof , i would buy vodafone shares right now if i was buying

this question comes up again and again
it should be stickied

If you dont have a share cert you will have to get new certs issued.
You need to contact computershare in order to do this and they will charge you plenty for it.
Then to sell them, you got 2 options

1. Bring the cert to a broker and getting them to sell the shares. You will have to pay the regular trading fees along with a fee for the conversion of the shares into electronic form at Crest (dematerialisation)
2. Computershare have their own share dealing service. It will prob work out cheaper than using option 1. And i'm not sure if they will require you to get new share certs issued either.

IMO, I would be a reluctant seller of Vodafone right now, with the Verizon/AT&T potential bid still out there (this has undoubtedly subsided somewhat over the last day or so, but there is no smoke without fire), the suggested price in the Financial Times over the weekend was £2.60 I think, the cash cow that is Verizon, the very generous dividend that is being paid, and very little obvious downside, why sell? (unless you need the shillings of course).

Should one still hold off on sale of these shares do you think?
