I think it is well known, for a lot of people it was one of the primary reasons for purchasing stock.

100, it's always 100 LOL , 100 shares of stock in the fianace world is called a "lot" or a "round lot".

Please be careful buying a stock without doing research about the company. People are always forgetting that buying stock is buying a piece of a company. If you went out and bought part of a company you would research; so treat this the same way. On the upside the entire stock market took a dump (there is a PRO to every CON) so stocks are on sell pretty cheap right now. Here is information on RCL. http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=rcl

My suggestion is if you don't know what P/E, Market CAP, or EPS means then you should find out before you buy any shares of stocks. If you don't know the difference between technical stock analysis and fundamental stock analysis then you should learn about that to. Would I advise you to buy this stock. I don't advise anyone about stocks; I'm not licensed and it's a violation of SEC rules. I would give the same advise if this was posted on the Carnival thread. Never buy 100 shares of a company in hopes of saving money off a cruise, you should buy stock because you believe the company is a good one to invest in. Stock ownership is NOT gambling.

Okay I'm done. LOL I'm sure I spelled fianance wrong at least once in this post. LOL I have seen too many good people get hurt in the stock market to be so casual about investing in stock and I just want to warn you to be careful. BTW I'm not an expert in trading stocks, the more I know about the stock market, the more I know I don't know much. :shock: :wink:

Its usually 100 shares that makes up a board lot, but not always....

Investopedia explains Board Lot
For example, a stock exchange might define one board lot as equaling 1,000 shares for stock priced under $1, and 100 shares for shares of more than $1. The thinking is that standardization increases liquidity thus lowering spreads and making the market more efficient for everybody.

Okay I understand. I don't buy OTC stocks and a stock under a $1 would be delisted from New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or/and the NASDAQ. So for the stocks I'm trading it's 100 for some OTC it's a 1000. Since RCL is traded on the NYSE it's 100 shares. I also checked RCL's investor website to verify. :D

Oh, absolutely, for RCL a board lot would be 100 shares.....but you said a board lot was always 100 shares and it's not, it depends on the exchange and the share price.

How do you confirm stock ownership with RCCL? Is there a time limit before a cruise? Thanks, mike

Sulross April 8th, 2009 09:49 PM

Onboard Credit
 
You might want to confirm this. You use to, but they have taken away many things lately. I think they stopped that if you have some other type of credit.

This website will answer all your questions. You must have the shares at the time of sailings. You can provide RCL a current brokerage statement showing proof of share ownership in Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd. There is an address on the website.

It takes them some time to process the credit. I suggest having the stock purchased and requesting the credit no later than two weeks before the cruise just to be safe. In my case I bought 100 shares of RCL a few weeks ago when it was around $6 per share. As soon as I received the transaction statement from my broker I e-mailed RCI at the address provided at the RCI Investor link provided in a previous message. I simply sent a pdf of my brokerage statement, my name, address, and booking number, and I got a confirmation of the credit two days later. Pretty easy.

My dad has Carnival shares and they are the same way. You pick the discount you can't have it all. :(
