Let us calculate The Travelers Companies company dividends. The minimum position volume is 1 lot comprising 100 shares. Let us take 10 lots for the sake of convenience:

  • To buy 1000 shares of The Travelers Companies you require
     10 lots x 100 shares x $113.80 (the current share price) / 20 (leverage)* = $5 690;
  • After multiplying 1 000 company shares by the dividend payment equal to $0.67 we get $670. We should also consider the 15% income tax provided for by the US laws.

As a result, with the margin of $5 690 you get the guaranteed payment equal to $569.5, which makes 10% of invested funds during 2 business days. 

Please note that you are supposed to place a long shares CFD position at least one day before the ExDate to receive a dividend. Learn more about CFDs and relevant dividend payments data in the Trading terms section.
