Why does some stock price divide by 100?


hin

Question

I have only just started learning investing in stocks but i wonder why some company stocks are divided by 100

For example, current market price of Easyjet is about 920 GBP but if I put 1 in the quantity share box, it will result as 9.20 GBP per share.

However, other companies are as normal (market price of tesla is about 680 USD and it's 680 USD per share)

can someone explain why to me please

Hey Hin, thanks for your first post.

In the underlying market UK and South African shares trade in pence. 

For example, when Easy Jet displays a price of 920, their share price is at £9.20. 

US shares and all others trade in dollars. So if Tesla's display price is 680, it's trading at $680. 

 

However, on Spread betting when you trade £1 per point it's equivalent to: 

Easy Jet, £1 per point is equivalent to 100 shares 

Tesla, $1 per point is equivalent to 100 shares. 

If you were trading £1 per point it would be equivalent to trading 100 shares x GBPUSD exchange rate. 

 

If you need clarification on anything else or have any other questions let me know. Either quote my response or sent me a notification by putting @CharlotteIG

All the best

    • As the cryptocurrency space evolves, Bitget keeps bringing up worthwhile initiatives to make crypto trading interesting and easy for its users as well as helping them maximise profit.  Gleaning from the likes of Candybomb to PoolX and the likes, the CEX has been seen to steadily provide these services. The PRE MARKET trade seems to be the newest product on the block right now. It is an over the counter trading platform that specialises in providing a pre-traded marketplace for new coins before official listing.  Simply put, it is a p2p framework of some sort that facilitates trading between buyers and sellers enabling them to acquire coins at optimal price thus enhancing advance liquidity and complete delivery at a mutually agreed upon time.  The interesting thing about the Pre Market is that; it allows the advocates or supporters of newly launched projects to trade through a contract before the token goes mainstream or before being airdropped.  This framework is very good for projects that have very high speculation, speculative traders should check out this product.  Good thing is the Pre trade is already live, you can leverage on it to purchase $MERL before its official listing, you could get to earn massive ROI. Here's the link; https://www.bitget.com/pre-market/MERLUSDT
    • Atomic Wallet is experiencing issues with their staking and rewards, so I would like to transfer my ATOMs to another crypto wallet. I contacted Atomic Wallet Support and they recommended Cosmostation Wallet and gave me instructions on how to do this. I followed the links they sent me, which required me to fill in my seed phrase. My ATOMs transferred to Cosmostation Wallet but were immediately transferred out. I never made that transaction. I contacted Cosmostation Wallet Support and asked them what happened. They informed me that I must have been talking to a scammer posing as support from Atomic Wallet. I contacted Atomic Wallet and they said I wasn't talking to a scammer and those links are legit. I lost my funds because my PC must be infected. Atomic Wallet wouldn't outright scam me would they?  
    • With the recent surge in "Cat Coins," a wave of playfulness and intrigue is sweeping the crypto community. KHAI, a meme token built on the Solana blockchain, is at the forefront of this movement. Fueled by a bullish community sentiment, KHAI has experienced a staggering 15.27% price increase in the past 24 hours, pushing its market cap to a noteworthy 24.4 million dollars. This impressive growth comes on top of a remarkable 94.3% price jump over the past week, significantly outperforming both the global market and other Solana-based cryptocurrencies. Could KHAI be the next big memecoin to reach unprecedented heights? Its recent listing on the Bitget exchange, accompanied by a giveaway event, certainly adds fuel to the fire. However, the question remains: will this newfound attention propel KHAI to even greater heights, or will it succumb to the volatility often associated with memecoins? Only time will tell.
