Microfocus shares

Question

Guest Matt_Stocker

Hi,

I would like to know why my 12 Microfocus shares were sold, then 9 were purchased. The Proceeds from the automated sale have not appeared in my account, not withstanding it was not initiated by myself nor was I informed that this might happen.

I am seeing a discrepancy between what I expect to have lost and what I have lost. The share price has dipped 4.9% since I purchased the shares, I have however lost about 32%.

From an initial purchase totaling £232 at 1858.76 = 12, i now have 9 shares at 1770, the proceeds of the 3 shares at 1770 (£53 or thereabouts) depending on the 30th of April enforced sale price should be in my account should they not?

Can you let me know what has happened here? I know they performed a buy back or something like that, however my expectation here is not that I should lose around ~£70 or so of investment as a result of their activity.

 

Kind regards,

Matt

Out of interest, what sort of notifications do customers receive about pending corporate actions?

Thanks

Micro Focus has recently undergone a stock consolidation (a corporate action) in the underlying market which we have reflected on your account. 

Depending on your line (US or UK) the following should apply.

Hi JamesIG,

Thanks, relatively new to this and especially new to this behaviour. It never hurts to ask, right.

Understood that the consolidation reflects the incorporation of another into the base, effectively dilution of the stock I guess. Because they've had a decent run of late they, MF, took this opportunity to rebase... Cool, best to learn this stuff with a pinch of skin in the game or you never learn.

Thank you for taking the time to answer.

All the best,

Matt

Absolutely @Matt_Stocker - the whole purpose of Community is to offer that transparent open space to all clients (and guests!) who have questions. No one can know everything, especially given the number of markets we offer and the multitude of different dealing and trading functionalities and strategies, so its always best to put your questions to the forum. :) Happy trading - shout if we can ever help further.

    • I believe DOG, as a memecoin is already quite popular and making a buzz. But as to your question, there are always new entries into the crypto space and when a reputable CEX like Bitget list it, it will substantially expose it to new communities and potential investors...    So all in all, I believe it will be good for DOG and it's future prospects! 
    • Sometimes ago, there was a CEX offering something similar but it was for new users and I even got to know about it a bit too late so I just didn't bother.   I think it's always great to see a CEX like Bitget offering this kinda promo for both new and existing users...    Thanks OP for the early heads up 👍
    • I saw Taiko on my TL yesterday but I didn't particularly pay much attention to it... But it seem they are on a good path and have forged some reputable partnerships along the way...  I have to say it's association with big guns of the industry like OKX, Kucoin etc makes it a good prospect and if you can get some of the coins early in the Bitget Pre-Market trading as you said, it will probably be a good investment in a long run!
