What’s going to happen post meger?

Looking at that, Nothing.

DISCK will change to WBD.
its the AT&T (NYSE:T) that are getting bounced about and current owners of AT&T will get 0.24 of WBD stock per 1 T.

Longer term : realignment of the two’ services… cross promotion. streaming libraries being restricted to their own to bolster themselves for the forthcoming ‘streaming wars’ (which was similar the food war which resulted in Taco Bell (or Pizza hut in Europe) being the only remaining restaurant).

So what happens if you hold Discovery shares on Freetrade?

hello?

There was a message from FT ok the app to say shares will get merged to the new stock.

Warner Bros and Discovery have now merged and trading as WBD. Is it possible to add this to Freetrade? Thanks

Also, any news from the Freetrade team as to when AT&T shareholders will be able to trade their WBD shares?
