Let us calculate dividend amount taking Caterpillar shares (CAT) as an example:

  • The minimum position size is 1 lot comprising 100 shares. Let us take a 10 lot position for the sake of convenience;
  • The sum required to buy 1000 shares is calculated according to the following formula: 10 lots * 100 shares * 77,866 (current share price) / 10 (leverage)*

As a result, $7786.60 is required to buy 1000 Caterpillar (CAT) shares;

Let us multiply 1000 shares by the dividend payment equal to $0.77. We get $770. We are also supposed to consider the 15% income tax provided for in the US legislature.

Summary: with the margin of $7786.60 you will get guaranteed $654.50, which makes 8.4% of the invested sum within 2 trading days!
