If they made £403m profit last year why are stamps so fcukin' expensive! How come so many of these state owned organisations make so much money? Shouldn't they be provided as a service to the country that owns them? Seems like my fridge charging me for milk if you ask me! 

 

Anyway, should I buy shares?

Profit/number of stamps = reduction in stamp price.

 

Easy.

Personally, institutionally or both?

I am. But I will sell them quickly (hopefully) as I do think they made a big profit in readiness for the sale (especially based on the previous years performances).

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.

I paid 60p for a first class stamp today, I thought they'd made a mistake.  What's happened to prices recently?

 

I guess as they go private the price will double in a few years.  I still wouldn't buy shares in Royal Mail though.

I remember stamps in Australia being 5c. They are now 55c if I recall correctly. I don't know how many people actually still use stamps other than maybe sending a card.

Email has taken over from the humble letter I think.

I don't know if the cost of stamps is due to wages etc, but if there nett profits are going up, then their outgoing costs and return on investment must be either the same or decreasing, I would have thought.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Because they realised they'd made a massive mistake and re-employed me!

They are giving me £2k worth of shares for free........ I'll take them but I doubt I'll buy any more.

Unless the business really plus it's socks up they'll be dead and burried within a few years, bought out by some company for £1 who will kick out the union and actually utilise the ifastructure it has and bin the outdated automation every other company has thrown out and keep trying to improve.

Then they'll maybe buy some decent automation.... Let's hope they buy decent parcel machines, they are so far behind in parcels automation it's unreal.......! Bet we get the cheap crap though!

Alan, just say it as it is! Don't be a pansy!

60c now Mr Ramjet.  Actually went up in 2010...  hope you haven't received any fines for undervaluing the service.  :turned:

 

Looks like we're linked to the UK price :huh:   60 for 60.  Although 60 pence currently converts to around $1.05 here. 

 

But it's all relative.  Just look at how far the Royal Mail has to travel to send that 60p postcard when compared to our distance.

I'm not in a position to give financial advice to others, but will I buy additional shares? Of course; it's heading in the right direction, just a bit late to the (parcel) party. Is it a good investment? Only the future can know.

 

There's progress to be made and the funds generated by the floatation will give RM the power to complete modernisation, open new markets, and reduce regulation.
