sophia1982: That is a nice write up of PLUS by James Hanbury (if it has not previously published). hxxps:// An interesting comment is the following: "Instead they limit customers’ position sizes. They are very happy to have whale traders, but they don’t like single whale trades. Their profile of winning/ losing days is extremely impressive: 85% of days are winning days. They do have big losing days. The biggest one came on a day in the Crypto craze in Oct 2017 where they lost £3.5m. Hanbury’s view is that is easily coverable by the £200m cash on the balance sheet. When there are high levels of downside volatility, Plus500 tends to make back money that it has lost quickly because volatility stimulates activity elsewhere". I would like to know more about PLUS' risk and how they cover it. Perhaps it has already been dealt with in previous posts, I am quite new to the company. But if anyone can shed more light onto this, that would be helpful.
barryharmer: Attachments to support your claim: For "Official Statement from your financial institute dated 21.08.2020 showing the exact Plus500 Shares held in your Account." and "Official Statement from the financial institute dated 11.11.2020 showing the Plus500 Dividend payment." I just download the PDF from the HL site showing the Income Account Transaction History entry for the dividend payment – it shows the amount paid as well as the number of shares it relates to. You could ask HL for the statement on ex-dividend date as well, but they won’t do it for any shares held in a SIPP. So I send 3 statements one for each type of account. A scan of your passport "Official letter from your financial institute with respect to their detailed wire instructions (Note, same financial Institute which holds the Share on your behalf)." Setup a currency account with HL, they are outsourcing the currency service in the near future, so the details will change from what I sent last time. When you setup the account they will provide the details you need to send ESOP. I send 'Alastair Billing' Details of the amount I expect in US$ about the end of the month after submitting the claim, it normally loses $20 in fees on the way. The reference you send ESOP is placed at the end of the reference field on their sending request, and this ref is truncated en-route and so HL do not what payment relates to whom. Form W-8BEN can be downloaded from Fill it out and it will require you to do an electronic signature via their website – it basically is you confirming that you are not a USA tax payer. I did it when I was asked to when they introduced the need, but have not sent it on claims after that. Do it and then don’t bother send it again. ESOP are not “jobs worth’s”, get your claim in quick and if something is not quite right they will let you know to rectify it – I have had a claim paid that I forgot to sign! Anyone that needs any clarification about any of it then message me. Only some of the info is HL specific.

barryharmer: Rose, Plus paid out an extra 5% of the divi about a week after the August interim results and statement about the new tax status of Plus500 which included reducing the withholding tax to 20% from 25%. The claim was then reduced to the 5% that would get the total tax deduction back to 15%. ESOP manages the claim. I think you got the automatic 5% that everyone got and was distributed the same way as the original dividend. I have asked ESOP but they have not replied yet.
rose_by_another_name: James- look here: Https:// Barryharmer put me on to this. Too much paperwork for me, especially as I am not holding Plus at the moment, but worth doing if you have significant dividends coming.
groveman1: Found this on Yahoo Financial - OK, not the most august organ of financial matters, but exposure, none the less: 'FTSE 250 stock Plus 500 is soaring today. I think there could be more to come Shares in online trading platform and FTSE 250 member Plus 500 (LSE: PLUS) were well into positive territory this morning as the firm hailed an “outstanding performance” over the first half of 2020. I suspect there could be more gains on the cards over the rest of the year. Plus 500: market crash winner Thanks to March’s market crash and the volatility seen since, total revenue at Plus 500 rocketed 281% to $564.2m compared to the same six-month period in 2019. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) came in at $361.8m — a stonking 452% higher. Unsurprisingly, the company welcomed a huge number of new customers (over 198,000) over the half-year. Client deposits jumped from just over $467m in 2019 to $1.65bn over the period and 47 million trades were placed — a dramatic increase on the 17.5 million seen last year. For those already holding the stock, the good news didn’t stop there. Dividend delight! In addition to announcing a new share buyback programme, Plus 500 also confirmed an interim dividend of $0.95 per share. That’s a rise of almost 250% on 2019’s cash payout! It also said that it was considering paying a special dividend to holders at the end of the full year. Based on trading over the last couple of months, I think the latter is very likely to happen. It said today that customer income in the second half of its financial year so far was still “more than double that of the prior year“. Moreover, Plus 500 is absolutely rolling in money. With no debt to its name, the FTSE 250 stock had almost $588m in cash at the end of June. The nature of its business means the firm won’t be to every investor’s taste. Nevertheless, it’s hard to be bearish on the company as things stand. Indeed, with the shares trading on just six times earnings before today’s results and the possibility that markets could remain skittish for some time to come, I certainly wouldn’t blame anyone for taking a stake now.'
markbelluk: Alliance news:- Contracts-for-difference trading provider Plus500 said it delivered an "outstanding performance" in the first half across all metrics, resulting in significant shareholder returns.

sailing john: This isn't a new situation but...... PLUS PBT for the half year Jan-Jun 2020 Likely to be higher than IGs FY PBT Jun 19-May 2020 (even despite Jun 20 being a difficult month for PLUS) AND - despite this, IGGs MC more than DOUBLE that of PLUS!!!!! bonkers! PLUS est PBT 1H20 circa £320m (6 months) MC £1315m IGG act PBT FY20 £296m (12 months) MC £2880m!!! And let's not pretend that IGG don't have any Customer P&L exposure - that isn't possible - they just don't publish the level before they go external to hedge. PLUS mention $40m but generally take other internal measures to limit exposure where possible. I think like PLUS IG will have had a difficult June with respect to hedging and perhaps that (coupled with accepted likely tail off in Rev post Covid) is why they are cautious about outlook? dyor SJ
traderkrk: True. Disappointing. Actually due to Plus news I increased my stake in xtb today. And appreciation better at xtb than at plus thanks to today's the plus news. They have as well some market making exposure (however with better risk management tools - e.g. Open Hub). Though the previous trading update of plus made many worried and today calmed many down, as core business is moving excellent as per webtraffic etc. May be just some investors were just too lazy to check how core business vs market making is broken down for Plus. As core numbers have been fantastic. They just seem to have compared top line Q1 vs Q2.
