Rights issue - confused, concerned



I had three long positions in Rolls Royce and there has been a 'rights issue'.

Can someone please explain in plain simple English what this means.

I am very confused what happens to my long positions - I believe I have an option to 1. take up the rights, 2. do nothing and let rights lapse or 3. trade out of the rights.

I think this means that I can get more shares for each one that I hold? What then happens to my previous long positions, stops etc?

Bes to have a read of the terms for the rights issue from RR - this will give you a better idea of what they are offering. 

Also, have a look at the below article from the Telegraph - it broadly cover the three items you mentioned above:

    • Does anyone else know any other SB providers that you can use to trade through TV?  I've only so far seen CFD providers which doesn't work for me due to tax reasons (mainly the hassle of having to account for it as well as the obvious cost).
    • Is there any update on when/if there will be any integration with Tradingview???
    • The anonymity of cryptocurrency transactions can vary depending on the specific cryptocurrency you use and the methods you use. While some cryptocurrencies provide a degree of privacy and anonymity, it is important to note that achieving complete anonymity can be difficult. Most cryptocurrencies operate on a pseudonymous basis. Transactions are recorded in a public ledger, called a blockchain, using cryptographic addresses instead of personal information. However, these addresses are usually not directly linked to a real identity, unless someone voluntarily discloses this information. Some cryptocurrencies, such as Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC), are specifically designed to increase privacy and anonymity. I read on https://deeplab.com/darkweb/anonymous-sudan-launches-cyberattacks-on-middle-eastern-news-outlets-expands-target-list-with-four-additional-names that some people use this anonymity as a cyber attack.
