Brought some shares in BP recently. Always wanted to do some share dealing, never had the balls. I grew some and spent a massive £500 :) I'm with the big players now. Call be Gordon Gekko.

I now own a massive 127 shares of BP. So probably own 0.000000000001% of the company :) (maths ain't my strong point).

If I sell now I'll have made myself a rich man. About £-8 profit if added on the charges :)

Anyway :)

I'm here to mention

As I wanted to do more, but still learning so instead of spending more real money, I started to do this. Not doing so great. £-248.21p :)

Bugger.

Oh and before you say "You hate Apple because of their business practise but brought shares in BP". Well in the share game forget emotion, buy and sell whatever makes you rich. If I could afford it and they were on the UK stock market, I'd buy Apple ones if I knew they would make me money. But they are on the US market, in dollars instead of pence like us so are expensive. I'm also well aware I'm not gonna get rich on only 127 shares :)

Didn't BP's shares plummet because of this oil problem which is "9/11 but a million times bigger" as Jeremy put it...

Yeah, that's why I brought them as they are now low but will end up going back up.

I don't know, maybe you should have invested in the Saudi oil giant "Aramco". Their shares go up and up...

Well done, spend the profits wisely :-)

Bit difficult buying Aramco as they are private so aren't on the exchange.
