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

    • Yes. IG does trade against retail traders. IG also has a lot of institutional traders. If your are trading low volume stock or Singapore CFD equities, the dealing desk will manually lock your order for a good 30 seconds so that you cannot delete nor change the order price level for the 30 seconds when they there is another bigger clients want to unload.  I have been locked this way as many ast 4 times in the past and cost over SG$10,000 loss. When I called IG, it said the dealing desk manually lock my orders with an excuse they are putting my order on hold so that they hedge it on the Exchange. In the first place I trade CFD and CFD is internal market within IG environment and our trade does not affect the market. It is highly irresponsible to lock our order. My complaints to IG for compensation via calls and emails all went without any positive response and the replies from them are as stated above. CFD market is internal market and our order should not be touched by dealing desk at all time even if there is no liquidity to fill our order then our order should just be left unfilled. At no time our order should never be locked by Dealing desk. To me this is day light robbery. Secondly, IG has deployed internal algorithm to hunt your hard stop losses and also filled in your limit order with a spike to the dot before immediately move in the opposite direction big time. Thirdly, some time IG platform will freeze and unable to re-login back when you are in a trade. This made it extremely dangerous when we cannot see the price action on the chart. This had happened to me a few times. Fourthly, nowadays even if your platform freeze or has other problem on your trade, call to their dealing desk during US market opens 100% of the time no support or dealing desk will pick your calls. My phone was kept ringing for 30mins or more and many different days. This is again does not speak well of the kind of support IG gave clients. The only attraction I use IG is the ease of use of their trading platform. These kind of  underhand tactics above are played out in IG on daily basis which made our day trading very difficult to win. It is very visible if your trade the small time frame how IG's manipulations are done.     The above comes from someone who trade daily with IG for the past 3 years. I am even considering to stop trading through IG because of the above under hand tactics. Sometimes     
    • Does IG aim to profit from client losses? No. Our business model is based on providing individuals with the opportunity to trade the world’s financial markets, in exchange for fair and proportionate transaction fees. It's a well-known fact that trading successfully is difficult, and most speculative traders tend to lose. However, we do not typically benefit from trading losses that an unsuccessful client may experience. Mostly, our clients offset each other’s positions. For example if client A buys one lot of the DAX and client B sells one lot of the DAX, both sides of the trade are covered. This means we're not exposed to the profit or loss of either client. Instead, we make our money via the spread (i.e. the transaction fee) that each client pays to trade. Sometimes, a large majority of clients will trade in one direction. When this happens, we'll protect our exposure to risk by hedging in the underlying market. For example, if client A and client B both buy the DAX, we may buy actual DAX futures. This then covers the amount we'll pay out if both clients are successful.
