Can Next Rebound after Profit Warning?

After the profit warning announced in September, investors are keen to see whether the clothing retailer can match expectations in the face of warmer weather.

Shares remain 20% higher on the year but 10% down since the September high when they announced the profit warning.

Update by IG Index
14-Jan-14 [1:09pm] OK, so it wasn't a great Christmas for many of the UK retailers but shares in Next and SuperGroup are just off their 52 week highs.

How to Spread Bet on Next

How to Spread Bet on Next?

If an investor is looking to invest in UK companies such as Next then one solution could be spread betting on the Next share price.

Looking at a spread betting website like FinancialSpreads, you can see that they have priced the Next Rolling Daily market at 3624.1p - 3629.9p. Therefore, an investor could put a spread bet on the Next shares:

  Next Spread Betting Example Moving above 3629.9p, or
  Next Spread Trading Example Moving below 3624.1p

When spread trading on FTSE 350 equities you trade in x per penny. Therefore, if you chose to invest 3 per penny and the Next shares move 25p then that would be a difference to your profits (or losses) of 75. 3 per penny x 25p = 75.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

You should note that this is a 'Rolling Daily Market', therefore it does not have a set settlement date. If you leave your trade open at the end of the day, it will stay open and roll over into the next trading session.

If you do roll over a bet and you are spread betting that the market will:

  Next Spread Trading Example Go up - then you are normally charged a small financing fee, or
  Next Spread Trading Example Go down - then a small payment is often credited to your account

For a worked example please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Next Rolling Daily - Equities Spread Trading Example

Now, if we think about the spread of 3624.1p - 3629.9p and make the assumptions that:
  • You've done your stock market analysis, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think that the Next share price is likely to move above 3629.9p
Then you may decide that you are going to buy at 3629.9p and risk 2 per penny.

This means that you win 2 for every penny that the Next shares increase and move higher than 3629.9p. Having said that, such a bet also means that you will lose 2 for every penny that the Next market goes below 3629.9p.

Thinking of this in a slightly different way, should you buy a spread bet then your profit/loss is found by taking the difference between the settlement price of the market and the price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

With this in mind, if after a few sessions the stock rose then you might consider closing your position so that you can guarantee your profit. If that happened then the spread, determined by the spread betting company, could be adjusted to 3702.5p - 3708.3p. You would settle your position by selling at 3702.5p. Therefore, with the same 2 stake:

Profit / loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (3702.5p - 3629.9p) x 2 per penny stake
Profit / loss = 72.6p x 2 per penny stake
Profit / loss = 145.20 profit

Trading shares, whether by spread betting or not, may not go to plan. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would increase. Naturally, it could decrease.

If the Next share price weakened, against your expectations, then you could close your position to limit your losses.

Should the market drop to 3548.6p - 3554.4p then this means you would settle your position by selling at 3548.6p. Therefore, you would make a loss of:

Profit / loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit / loss = (3548.6p - 3629.9p) x 2 per penny stake
Profit / loss = -81.3p x 2 per penny stake
Profit / loss = -162.60 loss

Note: Next Rolling Daily spread betting market taken as of 19-Oct-12.
