Odds for free stocks

Has FT ever publicised, or will it publicise, the odd/chance distributions for Freetrade free shares. I think it would be good for transparency and also more rewarding when you get “rare” or “expensive” stocks.

A fun idea could also be to say (either in-app or via twitter if someone shares their stock) that the odds of them getting this stock was less than the odds of (insert unlikely event here).

Unlikely event ideas:

1 in 600

The article was in one of the newsletters:



Interesting. Would be good to know the entire distribution though between £3 and £200

Maybe, now that fractionnal shares are a thing this incentive should evolve. Instead of winning 1 share of a random company the incentive could be a random fraction of 1 company.

For example, in month 1 the prizes would be between 0.001 and 0.1 share of Amazon, in month 2 it could be between 0.01 and 1 share of Apple, in month 3 between 0.05 and 5 shares of Coca-Cola and so on ?!

Whatever gives an expected cost of £5 per free share I’m guessing
