How Do I Trade Shares CFDs with ATFX?
If an individual client of ATFX is trading single share CFDs and there is a corporate action done by the related company – such as issuing a cash dividend – ATFX will adjust the client’s account accordingly. The action will be done as follows:
- Clients who hold BUY position(s) in single share CFDs on the ex-dividend date: Clients who are holding BUY position(s) will receive a positive cash amount which is equivalent to the dividend payout. (Deposits will be made into the client’s trading account according to their lot size and proportion of the dividend paying underlying securities).
- Clients who hold SELL position(s) in single share CFD on the ex-dividend date: Clients who are holding SELL position(s) will receive a negative cash amount which is equivalent to the dividend payout. (Withdrawal will be made from the client’s trading account according to their lot size and proportion of the dividend paying underlying securities).
Number of shares * Dividend per share = Adjustment amount
(If client account is denominated in USD, the adjustment amount will be converted to USD according to the spot exchange rate)
For example, assume Apple Inc. (APPL) announces a $0.01 USD cash dividend to its shareholders. On the ex-dividend date, Apple Inc.’s share price would reflect the corporate action and would drop $0.01 in price. ATFX will make cash adjustments to clients who are holding open positions of the Apple Inc. CFD. If an individual client of ATFX is holding 10,000 shares of BUY positions, the cash adjustment will be calculated using the following equation:
10,000 share CFDs x 0.01USD = 100USD cash dividend
(Note: If a client is holding 10,000 shares of SELL positions, ATFX will deduct 100USD from the client’s account.)
For example, assume Apple Inc. (APPL) announces a share dividend to its shareholders (1 unit of share dividend will be issued to each shareholder who holds 10,000 existing shares). On the exdividend date, Apple Inc. ‘s share price would reflect the corporate action and would drop $0.01 in price. ATFX will make cash adjustment to clients who are holding open positions of the Apple Inc. CFD. If an individual client of ATFX is holding 10,000 shares of BUY positions, the cash adjustment will be calculated using the following equation: Number of shares * proportion of Dividend Shares* reference share price = adjustment amount e.g. Reference share price declared = 180 USD
10,000 share CFD x (1/10,000) x 180 = 180 USD cash dividend
(Note: If a client is holding 10,000 shares of SELL positions, ATFX will deduct 180 USD from the client account.)
Share Split or Reserve Share Split
If a company announces a share split or reserve share split, the company’s share price will be subject to significant change. Reserve Share Split: CFD price will increase Share Split: CFD price will decrease If an individual client of ATFX is holding open positions (be it a BUY or SELL position), ATFX will make cash adjustments to clients who are holding open positions of the Apple Inc. CFD. All adjustments will be done in cash, or ATFX will implement the identical share split/reserve share split. However, a single share CFD will also be affected by corporate action, which may occur when the listed company initiates any business changes like share split, reserve share split and dividend payout, etc., and as a result may affect the company’s financial position, its share price performance and the interests of shareholders.
A listed company will announce its earnings reports semi-annually (or quarterly). Dividends are subject to approval by a company’s board of directors, and it is a distribution of a company’s earnings to a specified class of its shareholders. Generally, dividends will be issued in the form of cash dividends or share dividends.
Ex-dividend is a share trading term that specifies when a declared dividend is owned by the buyer rather than the seller. If an individual buys a share before ex-dividend day, he or she will be entitled the right to receive dividend; if an individual buys a share trades on or after the ex-dividend date, the buyer no longer has the right to receive the most recently declared dividend.
