Life Insurance Company Prudential has today revealed an “aggressive” growth plan. The firm has said it expects a 15% annual pretax IFRS operating profit growth up to 2017. The company is also on track to double 2009 Asia new business profits by 2013 and has now met five out of six of their 2013 objectives.

14-Nov-13 [9:46am] Rising UK Share Prudential +2.1%

On Thursday Prudential PLC reported a 12% rise in new business profit for the first nine months of the year, led by strong gains in its Asian division.

The UK's biggest insurer by market value said new business profit rose to £1.95bn across the group in the nine months to 30 Sep, up from £1.74bn in the same period a year earlier.

New business profit from Asia rose 20%, compared with 11% growth in the US and a 10% decline in the UK. The company attributed the decline in the UK to lower sales of annuities.

18-Oct-13 [11:02am] Rising UK Share Prudential +2.97%

The life insurance and financial services company has led the FTSE 100 higher following an upbeat statement overnight from Asian rival AIA. With Prudential having a strong exposure to the company, AIA reported record quarterly results and said its new business rose by 26%. The insurance sector was also helped by reports that an EU capital requirement could be eased compared to the initial version sought by regulators.

20-Sep-13 [10:47am] Falling UK Shares Prudential -0.58%

Prudential Financial has lost its appeal to shed greater government oversight, after regulators made a final decision that the insurer is one of a group of financial companies so big that they could threaten the financial system if they were to fail.

Prudential said Thursday that after a hearing and final vote, the Financial Stability Oversight Council maintains that the company is “systemically important” and therefore subject to stricter scrutiny. That could include requirements to boost its cash cushion against losses, limit its use of borrowed money and submit to inspections by examiners. It also will be under Federal Reserve supervision.

Update by Max Cohen, Trader, Spreadex
23-Aug-13 [10:11am] Rising UK Share Prudential +1.43%

Analysts at Deutsche Bank boosted their price target on shares of Prudential plc from $19.40 to $20.18 in a research report issued to clients and investors today. The firm currently has a 'buy' rating on the stock. Deutsche Bank's price target would suggest a potential upside of 15.08% from the stock's previous close.

How to Spread Bet on Prudential

How to Spread Bet on Prudential?


Should you want to invest in UK listed companies like Prudential then one option could be to spread trade on the Prudential share price.

Looking at a site like Inter Trader, you can see that they have put the Prudential Rolling Daily market at 1159.4p - 1161.6p. As a result, you can put a spread bet on the Prudential share price:

  Prudential Spread Trading Example Going higher than 1161.6p, or
  Prudential Spread Betting Example Going lower than 1159.4p

Whilst spread betting on UK shares you trade in £x per penny. Therefore, should you decide to invest £4 per penny and the Prudential share price moves 33p then that would alter your bottom line by £132. £4 per penny x 33p = £132.

Rolling Daily Equities Markets

You should note that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that unlike a futures market, there is no settlement date. If you leave your trade open at the end of the day, it will stay open and roll over into the next day.

If your bet is rolled over and you are speculating that the market will:

  Prudential Spread Betting Example Rise - then you will usually be charged a small overnight financing fee, or
  Prudential Spread Betting Example Fall - then a small payment is normally credited to your account

For a more detailed example see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.


Prudential Rolling Daily - Shares Spread Betting Example


Now, if you think about the spread of 1159.4p - 1161.6p and make the assumptions that:
  • You've completed your analysis of the shares, and
  • You think that the Prudential shares will push higher than 1161.6p
Then you might choose to buy a spread bet at 1161.6p for a stake of £3 per penny.

With such a bet you make a profit of £3 for every penny that the Prudential shares increase and move above 1161.6p. Nevertheless, such a bet also means that you will make a loss of £3 for every penny that the Prudential market falls below 1161.6p.

Looking at this from another angle, should you buy a spread bet then your profits (or losses) are calculated by taking the difference between the closing price of the market and the price you bought the market at. You then multiply that price difference by your stake.

If after a few sessions the shares moved higher then you might want to close your trade so that you can lock in your profit. Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread, set by the spread betting company, could change to 1201.1p - 1203.3p. In order to close/settle your position you would sell at 1201.1p. Therefore, with the same £3 stake you would make:

Profit = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
Profit = (1201.1p - 1161.6p) x £3 per penny stake
Profit = 39.5p x £3 per penny stake
Profit = £118.50 profit

Speculating on equities is not always simple. In the above example, you had bet that the share price would rise. Of course, it can also fall.

If the Prudential stock had started to fall then you could choose to close your position to stop any further losses.

So if the market dropped to 1126.8p - 1129.0p then this means you would close your spread bet by selling at 1126.8p. Therefore, you would make a loss of:

Loss = (Final Price - Opening Price) x stake
Loss = (1126.8p - 1161.6p) x £3 per penny stake
Loss = -34.8p x £3 per penny stake
Loss = -£104.40 loss

Note: Prudential Rolling Daily spread taken as of 15-Mar-13.
