Hi I work for Asda and was given some free shares(33, big deal). Are they
only quoted on the American stock market as I cannot find them on the London
stock market?
Thanks Ron

One of the great advantages Tesco has over Asda (apart from its loyalty
card which gives it the inside leg measurement of every customer!) is
its employee share scheme. Every member of staff gets a huge share
bonus every year meaning every one of them has a direct interest in
making sure Tesco does well, and it costs Tesco not one penny!

It'll be interesting to see how much your shares are worth and whether
they can be sold easily. How many hours a week do you work and how long
have you been with Asda?

If you go to http://uk.finance.yahoo.com and do a Symbol Look-up for
"walmart", you will find them quoted in a number of places, including
London.

Top of the list is:

WMTq.L Wal-Mart Stores Inc ,London, Stock

WMT is the code for Walmart on the NYSE.

better than that tesco offer 4 share schemes
1/ free shares for all based on profiles ( similar to a dividend)
2/ buy as you earn - shares paid for by the employee before tax is deducted.
hence £10of shares saves upto £4 in tax.
3/ save as you earn, buy shares at a 20% discount over 5 years based on the
price a few month prior to the scheme starting.
4/ charitable donations, taken out of taxable pay.

given there ridiculous turnover its amazing they don't actually advertise
these to staff.

I have about £1000 worth of shares - doesnt make me care anymore than usual
though! Its unlikely Tesco will do worse off that it currently is doing
anyway.

Does ASDA really exist? I've always assumed that it's some sort of
rumour put about by Tescos to give the illusion of competition! Is your
local branch really local?

Do you have one of those perpetual motion machines as well?
