How to trade the JLR IPO

Before the listing

IG offers an exclusive range of grey markets, based on a prediction of a company’s market cap at the end of its first trading day. If available for JLR, you can:

  • ‘Buy’ (go long) if you think the market cap will be higher than the price indicated
  • ‘Sell’ (go short) if you think the market cap will be lower than the price indicated

After the listing

With IG, you can get exposure to JLR shares in the same way as you would with any other shares listed on the stock market. You can:

What are grey markets and how do they work?

Grey markets enable traders to get exposure to a company before it lists on a stock exchange. When you decide to trade the grey market, you’re trading on the estimated market valuation of a company. The official valuation is only released after the first day of trading – and it is based on the demand shown by the market that day.

So, if you think a company’s market cap will be higher than the grey market price, you’ll ‘buy’. If you think it will be lower than the grey market price, you’ll sell.

Trading vs investing in JLR shares

Trading and investing are different in a number of ways. When trading JLR shares with us, you’ll use spread bets or CFDs to speculate on share price movements. Because you don’t own any underlying assets when trading, you'll speculate on both rising and falling prices. Further, spread betting and CFD trading could have various tax benefits.3

With us, you’ll trade spread bets and CFDs on leverage. You’ll only need a small deposit – known as margin – to open your position, while still getting exposure to the full value of the trade. Margin can have a big impact on the affordability of your trade, but both your possible losses and profits are magnified to the full value of the trade when you are trading on leverage.

When investing in shares with us, you’ll buy and own physical shares using a share dealing account. You’ll need the full value of your investment upfront to open your position. As you’ll own the underlying asset, you can only make money if you sell your shares when the share price is higher than what you bought them for or the company happens to pay dividends. As a shareholder, you’ll also have voting rights.

If you sell your shares when the price per share is lower than the price you bought them for, you’ll incur a loss, with the maximum amount that you can lose capped at the full value of your investment.

How do IPOs work?

An IPO occurs when a company decides to start selling its shares to the public. Most companies list shares to raise capital to fund expansion, pay debts, attract and retain talent, or monetise assets.

First, an audit must be conducted – considering all aspects of the company’s financials. Then, the business has to prepare a registration statement to file with the appropriate exchange commission. If approved, the company will list a defined number of shares at a price set by an investment bank. The shares will be available for sale through the chosen stock exchange.

IPO trading and investing risks

There are always risks involved in trading and investing. IPOs come with additional risks. These include:

  • Inadequate information regarding aspects that might impact a company’s share price, eg pending legal cases and no patent protection on intellectual property
  • Lack of trading history, meaning that past performance cannot be taken into account in decision making
  • Inflated market expectations that do not materialise
  • Companies not meeting their target market cap

It’s vital that you have all the relevant information before you take any position. When trading or investing in IPOs, you’ll find useful information in company prospectuses, admission documents and more. Staying informed helps you avoid risks that could affect your trading or investment position.
