Trading McCarthy & Stone – An Example
Let’s say you like McCarthy & Stone and would like to get the 3.5p/2.5% dividend. You decide to buy exposure to £10,000 worth of McCarthy & Stone using a CFD. To do this, you need £2,000.
Shares that go ex-dividend typically fall by the amount of the dividend on the ex-dividend date. Many shares then tend to recover over a period of time, helped by dividends being reinvested, creating a dividend recovery trade opportunity.
Assuming McCarthy & Stone shares recover to their pre-dividend share price, your profit from the dividend would be £250, from your initial investment of £2,000.
Be aware that the share price could fall or rise, which could mean that you make an overall loss or increased profit on the position. For example, let’s assume that McCarthy & Stone falls 2% at the same time it pays the dividend. You overall net loss on your £10,000 position would be £200.
