Hello everyone. I’m @olivertomolife and I love investing and shareholder special offers!
Dividends and price appreciation are the main attractions of stock investment, but I think shareholder special benefits are also the best part of investing.
Because you can participate in the management of a company over a long period of time, and also benefit from it.
In this article, I would like to introduce three companies that offer Quo Cards, a highly convenient shareholder benefit.
I’m going to focus on some of the stocks that I actually own, so let’s take a look!
The author has three years of investment experience and has experience in the securities industry.
By reading this article, you’ll get to know about our recommended quo card stocks!
- What is a QUO Card?
- 3 Recommended Quo Card Benefit Stocks!
- Three things to watch out for in shareholder special benefits
What is a QUO Card?
Quo cards were created in Japan in 1987, and up to now there are more than one billion of them in circulation.
They are used in a variety of situations because of their convenience, safety, and high name recognition.
It is also attractive because it can be used at any place as there are more than 60,000 member stores throughout Japan.
It can be used at major convenience stores, cafes, bookstores, etc. I highly recommend it!
Also, there is no expiration date, so there is no need to rush to use them.
3 Recommended Quo Card Benefit Stocks!
I have compiled a list of three Quo Card stocks that are profitable for long-term holdings.
Some of them are under 100,000 yen, so don’t miss them!
Fujimac, a manufacturer of kitchen appliances, offers a special benefit for shareholders in the form of Quo Cards every December.
To receive the benefit, you need to hold 100 shares at the end of December.
Shareholders who have held their shares for less than one year can receive a 1,000 yen QUO card, and those who have held their shares for more than one year can receive a 2,000 yen QUO card!
The stock price as of 8/2/2021 is 815 yen, so you can buy it for less than 100,000 yen.
Detailed information about Fujimac is provided in the following article.
2 Mizuho Leasing Co.
Mizuho Leasing, which is engaged in the leasing business, offers a special benefit to shareholders in the form of a Quo card every March.
To obtain the benefit, shareholders must hold 100 shares at the end of March.
If you hold 100 shares for less than one year, you will receive a 3,000 yen QUO card, and if you hold 100 shares for more than one year, you will receive a 4,000 yen QUO card!
The company has also increased its dividend for 17 consecutive years, making it a great value stock that offers both dividends and benefits.
The stock price as of August 2, 2021 was 3,700 yen, which makes it an expensive stock, but it is a company you can hold with confidence.

3 Will Group
Will Group, which operates a temporary staffing business, offers a special benefit to shareholders in the form of a Quo card every March.
In order to receive the benefit, shareholders must hold 100 shares at the end of March.
If you hold 100 shares for less than one year, you can receive 500 yen, if you hold 100 shares for more than one year, you can receive 1,000 yen, if you hold 100 shares for more than two years, you can receive 1,500 yen, and if you hold 100 shares for more than three years, you can receive 2,000 yen.
If you hold 200 shares, you will receive a quo card worth 1,000 yen for less than one year, 2,000 yen for more than one year, 3,000 yen for more than two years, and 4,000 yen for more than three years.
As of August 2, 2021, the stock price was 979 yen, less than 100,000 yen, making it a relatively easy stock to buy!

Three things to watch out for in shareholder special benefits
There are risks associated with shareholder special benefits, so I will explain what you should be aware of in each case.
1 There is a risk of deterioration in benefits
If the business situation of a company deteriorates, the content of the benefits may deteriorate.
In order to avoid such risks, it is advisable to check the company’s financial status.
Companies with a low capital adequacy ratio are more likely to revise their benefits, so be careful.
2 There is a risk of delisting of special benefits
Companies that have just gone public and are introducing shareholder benefits are at risk of discontinuing the benefits.
The reason is that in order to increase the number of shareholders they introduce the special benefit temporarily.
Therefore, if you are going to invest in a new company with a special benefit, you should think twice before investing.
3 There is a risk of change in the preferential treatment
Depending on the company’s business conditions, the conditions for obtaining special benefits may change.
For example, the requirement of 100 shares may be changed to 300 shares.
These cases can happen suddenly, so if your stock is eligible, you should make a decision calmly.
In my case, if there is a profit, I sell, and if there is a loss, I wait until there is a profit.
- Fuji Macro and Will Group’s special benefits are recommended for less than 100,000 yen.
- Know the risks of shareholder benefits.
- Support the company by holding for a long time.
I have introduced three stocks that can give you a quo card!
I hope this will be helpful to you.
