Here's a weird rabbit hole - how do you become a 'shareholder of record'?
Posted by: mattkime

I visited my inlaws recently and my father in law passed on a union pacific calendar that he received for being a stock holder. I find it quite attractive - pictures of trains snaking through remote terrain are a nice break from present worries. Anyway, I was interested in buying a share of stock to get my own calendar and I found this - [www.up.com]

It mentions 'shareholder of record' which google searching reveals you somehow own the stock directly with the company rather than in a brokerage account. How the hell does one go about doing that?? My father in law is of an older generation and regards most things digital the same way he does interstate highways - with a degree of skepticism. Also, he might have bought the stock a half century ago.

Anyway, help me get free calendars. How do I become a 'shareholder of record'?

I think investing through a site like StartEngine would be one way.

[www.startengine.com]

StartEngine allows small start-ups to connect with smaller retail investors instead of PE firms. When a funding campaign closes, similar to a KickStarter campaign, investors become a shareholder of record with the company. You are literally part owner of the company.

Disclaimer: I have used StartEngine to invest in Eli Electric Vehicles and Redivivus Inc.

Eli makes small commuter EVs.
Redivivus has a novel method for pacifying lithium ion batteries for transportation and recycling.

I think that I get a bonus of some type if someone I refer invests through StartEngine, so if anyone is interested, let me know and I'll look into it more.

Just buy a share of stock through a broker. The broker will register you as a shareholder with the company. That’s all there is to it.

I would direct my inquiry about this to the link I found on your link

[www.up.com]

Tell them exactly what you want to do any why and see what they say.
