|Might visit and AL. branch and have a chat with an Financial Advisor.
Now which branch shall I visit???|
|No-one fancy a weekend in Bombay? don't blame you .
If! the West can't handle its current markets crisis there will be no cash to hold back the goths ( ie, the Al-K , the Taliban .) so the Bank bosses better remember this: they were playing dice with our principles and our ability to hold back the people who can do big damage. You were playing bingo with the money to put a soldier in the field out there. OK Gordon's Alastair can print more, but we know its not gonna deliver the same hardware etc.
At least I will have the personal satisfaction of confronting my local Al-K representative with a sharpened hill walking stave in the eye if he ever comes near here.
Off I go, then. Lastly I am sorry but all these banking bosses - should be stuck in front of a grand jury for grand larceny.
Also local bank managers should have to deliver cash to small businesses personally, in wheelbarrows. In bare feet. Well its better than street gallows . Thats for a later post I hope I never have to post.
Sorry, if this post reached you thanks to my 4th glass of plonk. I very rarely do this. No appols.
|jenny do you still have that short open on bnc?|
Stand up and salute as the markets fall.|
|My Barclays portfolio is now showing both the BNC and the AL. shares.|
|Many thanks Acamas. That sounds pretty reasonable - let's hope we haven't been completely stitched up!|

|Sea and Sky,
As BNC shares are quoted on the LSE and in Madrid I believe they qualify to be held in an Self Select Shares ISA. Spain was accepted by our IR in 1971.
I am also in a similar position to yourself with Barclays. I expect Barclays to eventually credit me with one third BNC share holding|
|would anyone know if you held AL. shares in an ISA what will happen? Can you hold Santander shares in a UK ISA?
Many thanks - apols if this has already ben covered. Barclays are too busy jumping out of windows to man the phones at the moment....|

|Funny thing is a lot of the shorters on the banking stocks are now the banks themselves, how ironic is that???
|On Friday, A&L will be acquired by Banco Santander, the Spanish bank that already owns Abbey and is buying B&B's savings business and branches.
Then, A&L's 500,000-plus shareholders will receive one Santander share for every three A&L shares. This is a good deal based on Friday's close: A&L shares were at 304p and Santander at 15.65 (£12.19).
Under Spanish law, dividends will be taxed at 18%. British basic-rate taxpayers can apply for a 3% refund through a Spanish tax representative or "gestoria". They would pay 15%, compared with the 10% they usually pay. Higher-rate taxpayers are charged 32.5% on dividends and would have to pay the difference of 14.5% to HM Revenue & Customs.
"The allure of joining the share register of what may be seen one of Europe's up-and-coming financial institutions may be strong, but some will not want to inherit the awkward tax situation that comes with owning part of a Spanish-registered business," said Hugo Shaw at the broker Bestinvest.
Note: I read somewhere that the new BNC shares will be listed on the LSE when the conversion takes place|
|Thanx Selbourne edge.Did you see the Sunday times article?
It stated quiet clearly that Santander shares were 15eu and they worked that out to be £12.00.
I was ready to invest my life savings !
Through advfn I only found Santander on the NYSE.|
|I think that the Symbol for Santander is 'BNC' and the share price currently stands at 908.5 p. I purchased a small number of AL. shares last week and I am fairly sure that they will be converted into Santander shares in due course.|
|Hi guys could you please tell me if Im correct in thinking that I can still buy AL. shares and recieve 1 santander for every 3 AL.?
Could somebody give me the ticker code [with prefix for advfn monitor] for Santander please.
Thanx in advance|
|or if there is a financial market left to deal in?|

|Santander have made an absolute killing from AL and B+B, millions of new desposit customers and all backed by the Bank of England should they withdraw, its almost a spanish invasion. I imagine when the dust settles and the investors reflect, the winners from this crisis will be clear to see, but its going to take a few months.|
|Q..........with savers looking at 'safe havens' (northern rock seen as a safe haven now!)with the present £35k 'protection' on accounts,is AL covered by this rule,or not,as they are owned by a foreign comp,santander?|
|Tell you what girls, you lot had luck when Santander bought AL., or you'd be next|
