Canadian Stocks/canadian stocks
Have two old stock certificates:
1. Vista Explorations LTD (Sterling Trusts Corporation, Toronto); 100 shares.
2. Rival Technologies INC. (Montreal Trust Company of Canada, Vancouver); 17 shares.
Are they worth anything?
Can they be redeemed?
If worth anything, how can they be redeemed?
Blair, from the information I have available:
Vista had numerous name changes and at least 2 reverse stock splits (1 for 2 and 1 for 4) and is now Unique Broadband Systems, which trades for about 1 cent per share. You can confirm this information with the current transfer agent (www.tmxequitytransferservices.com).
Rival Technologies has left Canada and was registered with the SEC until last year when they voluntarily deregistered. Always a very bad sign. The stock currently trades for about 2 cents per share.
