What are Stocks?
Stocks represent an asset class that allows an investor to own a part of a company and even have voting rights depending on the type of shares issued. Shareholders receive part of the company’s profits based on the amount of shares they hold.
Stocks are usually sold on the stock market. Companies go public and issue stocks as a means to build capital and grow their business. Investors on the other hand, buy stocks to diversify their portfolio and seek to gain profit from stock price movements.
By trading CFDs on Stocks with Tickmill, you may go long or short on a range of individual stocks of renowned companies including Apple, Amazon, Goldman Sachs, Nike and McDonald’s and take advantage of market movement without owning the underlying asset.
What are Dividends?
Shareholders receive dividends. Dividend payment represents the amount shareholders receive from the profits of a company in which they hold shares and this is determined by the board of directors of a company.
Dividends are usually paid in cash, however, they can also be issued in the form of shares or other property.
The dividend is usually stated in terms of monetary value, for example, how many dollars each share will yield, but can also be referred to as a percentage of the market value of the share, a term also known as dividend yield.
When it comes to dividend payments, it is important to follow the dates on which payments are scheduled as these determine the shareholders who are eligible for the next dividend payment.
The date on which the dividend eligibility expires is called the ex-dividend date. If an investor owns shares the day before the ex-dividend date, they receive the next dividend payment.
Important Note: During times of significant increase in market volatility on single stocks due to upcoming earnings reports and/or corporate actions, leverage may drop to 1:5 to protect clients from higher exposure.
Upcoming Stock Dividends
In order to ensure your trading account remains unaffected by the ensuing price action (solely as a result of the dividend event), we'll make a cash adjustment to your account to reflect the equivalent dividend amount due.
1. Expected dividend adjustments indicated in full stock points per contract. The actual adjustment may differ from the forecast amount previously displayed.
2. Dividend adjustments are subject to 30% tax deduction on long positions.
3. Dividend adjustments are only applicable to live trading accounts; demo accounts will not reflect any dividend adjustments or details.
