8 Great Reasons Why Your Unlisted Stocks and Bonds Could Still Generate Surprising Revenues
- 2,500 companies change name every year. However, shares of predecessor companies can be exchanged for new ones as there is no statute of limitations.
- Through amalgamation, mergers and acquisitions, corporations disappear from the exchanges. Nonetheless, investors retain their original equity and new certificates can be issued.
- Bankrupt companies can leave funds behind for investors to claim once the liquidation process has been completed.
- Dormant, or even defunct companies can be reactivated under different names when market conditions are more favorable. This means your worthless securities are back in business, too!
- Privatized companies are taken off stock exchanges, yet their shares are redeemable for cash.
- Companies dissolved following a buyout will have provisions to pay back stock and bond holders.
- Disrupted communication between companies and their investors is not unusual. Don't give up hope just because no one contacted you in years!
- Even for long gone companies, their intricate certificates can still be valuable on the market of collectible stocks and bonds. As paper transactions progressively disappear, the historical relevance and aesthetic beauty of original certificates are gaining popularity and value.
