All About Warrants


Everything about warrants.

For the investor who wants to diversify their portfolio, warrants provide an alternative way to be exposed to assets such as shares. On top of a new security, companies will often issue warrants as an added attraction for buyers.

What are Warrants?

Using Instalment Warrants to take Advantage of Reporting and Dividend Seasons


Instalment warrants give you the right but not the obligation to purchase underlying shares; advantages - reporting & dividends

Dividend seaon comes straight after the reporting season and for the stocks listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) these events come around yearly around February and August. Using instalment warrants allows investors and traders to maximise their dividend income. Investors may want the exposure to the franking credits as well as the increased income, while traders may see the increased dividend and franking credits as a bonus to their regular trading strategy - perhaps looking to profit after an ex-dividend rebound if the shares are especially bullish.
