Financial Betting on Stocks and Shares


Different types of shares. When considering company shares it is good to first categorise what type of share it is, then consider how it is likely to perform before finally considering to spread bet on it

– High yielding shares are those shares which offer a high rate of return or dividend
– With growth stocks investors are looking for an upward movement in the share price rather than a high dividend yield.
– Recovery stocks are the shares of companies which have been going through a difficult path. They may be firms which have been successful in the past, but which have seen a drop in profits because the general market is poor, or they may be shares which have not met investor’s expectations, or which are failing.

With financial spread betting, you buy or go long if you think that the price of a particular instruments, Facebook for instance, will rise in the forseeable future, and you go short (sell) if you believe that technology stocks will fall in the near future. If you were right and prices moves in the direction you anticipated, you make a gain, otherwise you make a loss.

By taking a short position on Facebook stock, you could also profit from any down movement in the company’s stock price in the coming days or week, should the technology stock turn out to be a bubble. Alternatively, those who believe that Facebook is the future, could take a long position on the company’s stock. Any increase in Facebook’s stock would then result in a profit.
