Tesco Dividend

Recommended Posts

There is probably a straightforward answer to this, but why has the Tesco Special Dividend been converted (at the $/£ FX rate) when the dividend and my account are in Sterling?

The conversion is to account for the reverse stock split. However, it is still innacurate. Tesco’s reverse split was 19 for 15 -- 15/19 = 0.78947368. 19 x 0.71391184 = 13.56, in other words 19 shares received money for 13.56 not 15. I would really like to know the answer to that. Say you have 115 shares, you now probably have 90.7 shares, that multiplied by 0.5093 (£50.93 a share). You should've received £46.19 dividend and you probably received £41.81, instead.

Same here. I was Expecting the dividend in full yet it seems that IG have helped themselves to 29% of our money. Moving my account is starting to look appealing.

I have been paid dividend based on the amount of new shares. Surely this is incorrect, I thought that dividend was supposed to be based on the amount of shares pre-consolidation? 

And even then, the figures are around £200 off. (Assuming due to conversion rate others have mentioned above)

I had the same thing.

This is clearly wrong and needs correcting asap as the special div was due to be paid on 26 Feb and is already late.

Also, I've had an ongoing question with the IG Corporate action team since I received the the original email on 12 Feb 21. The email stated as follows:-

How will it work?

 Let’s say you have 190 shares priced at £2.50 per share. We’ll close your original position and open a new one to reflect the 15-for-19 consolidation. This means that you’ll now have 150 shares, and the share price will have adjusted to £3.16 per share. The total monetary value of your position remains the same.

This is also clearly wrong. The share price was not and was never going to be adjusted under the terms of the consolidation, with the change of position value being made up by the special dividend.

All I required was for the IG CA team to confirm that the wording of the email above was incorrect. So far it has take over 2 weeks to get the most vague response. that has not addressed my specific point.

@Qwerty123 @Stu73

For me the amount of shares that the dividend is paid for is the pre consolidated amount, so that at least is correct.

@CharlotteIG what is going on with this dividend?

Hey all, 

Tesco special dividend is actually in GBP , but unfortunately there was an error that payed it in USD instead of GBP.. This is now resolved, we have reversed all USD payment and paid it in GBP again but sorry for the inconvenience and any confusion caused. 
All the best

    • Q: How can I experience the Fairy Cat metaverse? A: Debuting in January 2023, Fairy Cat is one of the most popular crypto metaverse games. While earlier games (World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Destiny 2) either precede blockchain technology or have not integrated it into their games at all, more recent metaverse iterations - such as FairyCat - integrate metaverse games and blockchain platforms. These so-called "crypto metaverse" games use blockchain technology to achieve encrypted in-game cash, play-to-earn (P2E) and non-fungible tokens (NFT), decentralization and other functionality to bring extraordinary benefits to metaverse games. relevant impact. You don't need to be a crypto expert to play this innovative game, although a little crypto knowledge is helpful to take advantage of all the functionality of FairyCat. Start exploring Fairy Cat: 1. Go to the Fairy Cat website to learn more about the game's currency models, then download the Metamask wallet. 2. Start earning money by opening the game in the Metamask wallet browser. At this point, the game will connect to your wallet account. Don't worry that this game will steal your wallet balance, because it doesn't need your account authorization data, it just needs your wallet data. 3. Once you are in Fairy Cat, you can go through a money transfer tutorial to learn the basic controls. Then you can earn money in the following three methods: Method 1: Adopt a cat to help you find treasures, and you can make profit after selling the treasures. Method 2: Synthesize an LV1 elf cat through 5 elves, and then sell the LV1 elf cat to earn money. This can be understood simply as using 5U to earn 10U (50% probability), and you can buy items to increase the synthesis rate. Method 3: Invite your friends to play the game. After your friends earn money, you can also get commission income. The income is very high.
    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
