Greater access for genuine shareholders.
All too often unverified posters on share forums claim that they have a shareholding but then proceed to post nothing but negative comments about the company.
Not unreasonably those observing this behaviour may doubt the original shareholding claim - made as it is in the full knowledge that none of the traditional forums allow this claim to be verified.
We believe that posters on our share discussion forums are entitled to know if they are interacting with genuine shareholders or not.
We have therefore introduced a (completely optional) mechanism for shareholders to verify their status.
This is indicated wherever a posters name is listed.
Their karma level and badges (gold/silver/bronze) for popular and highly rated contributions are also shown.
Shareholder Only Forums
Verified Shareholders also get access to shareholder only forums
Shareholder Only Trading Analysis
The detailed trading analysis that we undertake often relies upon disclosures from Private Investors to unpick the patterns that underly the daily share trading. Some PIs are, not unreasonably, unwilling to disclose these on public forums.
The information that we recover from this - identifying patterns of short trading and the nett trading positions of Market Makers is of great value to Investors, but also to those who may be shorting the stock or trading against the interests of long term investors.
The most in-depth trading analysis is only available to Verified Shareholders.
No verification documents are archived electronically.
You can become verified via one of two routes;
A. Simply provide a proof of shareholding letter - this can be obtained from your share trading platform. It is exactly the same document that you would need to provide to the company if you wished to vote at an AGM in person. It is not a bad idea anyway to establish how you can get this from your platform.
... or route B
B1. Proof of Identity - ideally this can be the scan of a driver's license
B2. A scan or screenshot of a trading platform page showing the BMN holding and date.
You can send these to verification @ thebushveldperspective.com. Once they have been received they will be printed to paper for archiving. All emails to this address are permanently removed after 30 days.
