Has anyone sold their stock after getting benefit in Princess account and before cruise? Anyway, to all that are asking or questioning getting the credit. I purchased 100 shares in my Rollover IRA account on Nov 10, 2017 when earnings came out and the stock went down a couple of dollars. Sent in screen shot of account showing the stock and was denied because no name on the screen shot. Then their fax system was down for 4 days. (make sure you call after you fax and they will look up to see if they received it). I faxed it 4 times and they did not receive because of their fax system problems on their end. I waited to get a trade confirmation of the buy and printed that out. It shows my name, address, and purchase. Crossed out the account numbers, buy price, sell price and pretty much everything on the statement but name and CCL 100 shares bought. Finally faxed it in the morning and my credit is now in my Princess account a couple of hours later. Now to decide if I should sell and take the small profit (it is back up again!), wait for the ex-dividend on Nov 24, sell by end of year, or wait for my cruise early next year.
I agree with what cruiseintoheaven said in his post. If it's like most places where you buy stock, you're going to have to pay a broker's fee when you purchase stock so why spend extra money buying/selling/buying/selling/ etc. before every cruise? Of course if you don't plan to cruise any more that's not a factor but again, the stock is rising o why not stay with a horse that's running well? In the 2 years I've owned my 100 shares, I've made over $260 on dividends, $550 on OBC and have $200 more on OBC scheduled. Not bad for an investment of less than $5000! 20% return on an investment in 2 year not counting a 40% increase in value of the stock. Heck, I wish all my investments would do that well! I'd recommend you keep the stock and reinvest the dividends! But, your desires may differ! In any event, good luck!
