In fact, Austevoll Seafood’s large scale fisheries activities at the week’s entrance on the Oslo Stock exchange had a negative value of EUR 200 million.
Although the article did not involve any recommendation, it could form the basis for a so-called long/short-trade, where investors would buy Austevoll and sell Lerøy. It would thus be a market neutral trade, with one betting that the gap in pricing between the two shares is going in – regardless of how the stock exchange generally develops.
Since the article was published, there has been movement in both shares.
While Austevoll Seafood has risen by 3.7 per cent, Lerøy has fallen, specifically by 1.7 per cent, during the four-day share trading. The difference, at 5.4 per cent, is the theoretical paper gain from a spread trade here.
