The Royal Mail is not profitable as company, personally I think it will be risky to invest.

The government will hold majority of shares:

the company is not qualify for FTSE 100:

I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole, i dont think we are too far off privatisation with the constant price hikes.

I will miss this time, better to invest to funds instead of single company.

Probably good for the short term due to all the hype in the press. Wouldn't be surprised to see strong gains in the first day (or week) followed by a sharp drop (depending on the financials of the business which I haven't bothered looking at).

agree with you, the first week strong will be gain and after will go down, at the end of the day the Royal Mail is not profitable. 50% controlled by government, 10% by members of staff and the rest is by public.

No, Royal mail is a dead horse time for City link and the several others who are cheaper and better to take over.

Nope just wouldn't bother, they are useless and I can't see them being very profitable private Companies are starting to get most of the parcel work too now

As far as I know City Link is not sending letters and anyway there is much more parcels through RM network compare to City Link

City Link offer the whole lot from unsorted and sorted bulk letters however it's handed off at the final mile there also both cheaper and faster than Royal Mail.
