One More Reason To Buy One Share of DreamWorks Stock

dwa-101-logo100  Better buy one share of DreamWorks stock and get the authentic stock certificate while you still can!  Reports are that Japan’s SoftBank is in talks to buy DreamWorks Animation SKG.  If that happens, the authentic paper stock certificate featuring the famous logo and Shrek peaking out from the bottom, will go away forever.

That will be great news for stock certificate collectors as the collectible value of the certificate will increase but we will be sorry to see it go, because it has been one of the most popular stocks on our stock list.

    I have one I bought in early 2000 for my granddaughter when she was a baby I have been trying on and off to find how much this stock was worth. Tried to do address change and everything. Don’t know where to go to do this. I get dividend checks quarterly drm my Disney stock but haven’t heard anything in years from DreamWorks.

    Hi Jackie,

    Comcast bought Dreamworks back in 2016 for $41 per share. The shareholder should have received mail from the transfer agent at the time but it sounds like you may have moved and so maybe the paperwork did not get to you. We actually opted to keep our cute stock certificates with Shrek as collectibles rather than turn them in for the $41. Because this was a while ago, it is possible that the transfer agent deemed your account inactive and may have turned it over to your state as unclaimed property. This might actually be a good thing because if that did happen, you will likely be able to hang on to the certificate and still get the proceeds. Here is more info on the buyout: https://money.cnn.com/2016/04/28/media/comcast-dreamworks-nbcuniversal/ Here is more info on unclaimed property/escheat: https://www.giveashare.com/escheat-stock.shtml . The unclaimed property process is relatively simple so give it a shot. I just went through it for both Oregon (were we used to live) and Arizona. If it is not there, I would check with Comcasts transfer agent (http://cmcsa.com/shareholder-services/faqs) One more link for you is to show you how old stock certificates can have collectible value: https://scripophily.com/ . I hope that helps.
