Odey Asset Management Continues Buying Plus500 Shares, Should You?

Odey Asset Management continues to fortify its share holdings of the beleaguered Plus500, bringing its overall stake to 18.46%

As recently as last week, Odey Asset Management was slated to be a buyer of shares, increasing its stake in Plus500 (LON:PLUS) by 1,605,000 shares to a 14.09% stake in the online CFD and forex broker.

On May 15, 2015, shares of Plus500 were trading at 750p – the subsequent bloodletting last week saw shares plunge to a 52-week low of 198p, rescinding the 200p handle for the first time since 2013 on the back end of a trading suspension that further eroded investor confidence. However, the shares have bounced higher to start off a shortened trading week week, which is now threatening the 300p level.
