Trading Tesco– An Example
Let’s say you like Tesco and would like to get the 4.1p/1.7% dividend. You decide to buy exposure to £10,000 worth of Tesco 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 Tesco shares recover to their pre-dividend share price, your profit from the dividend would be £170, 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 Tesco falls 2% at the same time it pays the dividend. You overall net loss on your £10,000 position would be £200.
