When my dad died I inherited his portfolio of stocks and shares and, apart from a little dabble about 20 years ago (a penny share that was a 'sure thing' - yeah, right), I've never really taken much of an interest in the stock market. Now and then a paltry dividend seems to get deposited in my bank account and if I could be bothered to do all the paper work I'd sell them. But would I? they are probably almost worthless now, although when I first inherited them they were valued at quite a good amount.
If only I'd not put off Doing The Paperwork.
