Life after the Football Index Share Split

[vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” parallax=”content-moving” parallax_image=”1815″ css=”.vc_custom_1507026196791{padding-top: -250px !important;padding-bottom: -250px !important;background-position: center;background-repeat: no-repeat;background-size:cover;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]I have never felt like so many players on the Index are a good investment.

It’s all because of the Share Split, which was implemented earlier this week.

I told myself for the last 6 months that players would seem cheaper…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” gap=”15″ equal_height=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1507034058643{padding-bottom: 50px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Psychological Effects of cheaper pricing

I really didn’t think that this would have much of an effect on existing members on the Index, but it definitely has.

A few hours after the share split, Neymar had increased by 50p… This wasn’t all from new members signing up at the right time.

I even deposited a 5 figure sum into the index, so it even had the effect on me.

The fact that it has worked on existing traders means that it will be an absolute god-send to new members.

Yes, dividend payouts per share have dropped (shares have multiplied they haven’t physically dropped), but new members to the Index don’t know of the £0.12 treble PB days.

Let’s face it, new members are more willing to buy Messi at £5 a share, than they would at £15 a share.

The Share Split will have its desired psychological effects. It will take time however.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” gap=”15″ equal_height=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1507034058643{padding-bottom: 50px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

My Thoughts

The share split is a great thing, however, it just doesn’t seem to be as thrilling to get a ‘lower’ payout.

Now I know what you’re thinking, it’s not actually a lower payout at all.

Football Index have actually increased dividend payouts slightly.

However, the figure looks smaller, so it does seem like I am getting less.

I know it makes no sense, but it’s what my brain is thinking!

If my brain is thinking this, I am sure there are other users which may be confused, which is a little concerning.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
