How to Spread Bet on Smith & Nephew

How to Spread Bet on Smith & Nephew?

If an investor is looking to invest in firms like Smith and Nephew then one solution is to spread trade on the Smith and Nephew share price.

Logging onto Capitalspreads, we can see that they have priced the Smith and Nephew Rolling Daily market at 647.1p - 648.4p. Therefore, an investor could spread bet on the Smith and Nephew share price:

  Smith and Nephew Spread Trading Example Going above 648.4p, or
  Smith and Nephew Trading Example Going below 647.1p

Whilst making a spread bet on UK shares you trade in £x per penny. Therefore, if you invest £5 per penny and the Smith and Nephew shares move 31p then that would be a difference to your profits (or losses) of £155. £5 per penny x 31p = £155.

Rolling Daily Shares Markets

You should note that this is a Rolling Daily Market which means that it does not have a set closing date. If your position is still open at the end of the day, it will roll over to the next trading day.

If your position does roll over and you are speculating on the market to:

  Smith and Nephew Trading Example Move up - then you'll normally be charged a small financing fee, or
  Smith and Nephew Trading Example Move down - then a small payment is usually credited to your account

To learn more about Rolling Daily Markets please see Rolling Daily Spread Betting.

Smith and Nephew Rolling Daily - Shares Trading Example

So, if we consider the above spread of 647.1p - 648.4p and make the assumptions:
  • You've completed your company analysis, and
  • Your analysis leads you to think that the Smith and Nephew shares are likely to move above 648.4p
Then you may choose to go long of the market at 648.4p and invest, for example, £5 per penny.

So, you gain £5 for every penny that the Smith and Nephew shares go higher than 648.4p. However, you will lose £5 for every penny that the Smith and Nephew market falls below 648.4p.

Looked at another way, if you ‘Buy’ a spread bet then your P&L is worked out by taking the difference between the final price of the market and the initial price you bought the spread at. You then multiply that difference in price by the stake.

Therefore, if after a few days the shares started to increase then you might think about closing your spread bet and therefore guarantee your profits. Taking this a step further, if the market rose then the spread, set by the spreads firm, might be adjusted to 670.4p - 671.7p. To settle/close your trade you would sell at 670.4p. As a result, with the same £5 stake:

Profit = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Profit = (670.4p - 648.4p) x £5 per penny stake
Profit = 22.0p x £5 per penny stake
Profit = £110.00 profit

Speculating on equities doesn't always go to plan. In this case, you wanted the share price to rise. Nevertheless, the share price can also decrease.

If the Smith and Nephew stock began to fall then you might decide to settle/close your spread bet to stop any further losses.

If the spread fell to 629.9p - 631.2p you would settle/close your trade by selling at 629.9p. If so, this would result in a loss of:

Loss = (Settlement Price - Initial Price) x stake
Loss = (629.9p - 648.4p) x £5 per penny stake
Loss = -18.5p x £5 per penny stake
Loss = -£92.50 loss

Note - Smith and Nephew Rolling Daily market accurate as of 19-Oct-12.
