3 Tips To Boost Your ROI On Football Index Part II


Welcome back Football Index traders, its been a while! Last time out, on the 21st November, we brought you ‘3 Tips to Boost Your ROI‘. Our 3 tips were: Griezmann, Ronaldo and Sturridge. Here's a look back to that article from just over two months ago.

3 Tips To Boost Your ROI On Football Index Part II

‘Griezmann, currently priced at £1.37 per future, represents a trade with an eye to long term return on investment. Personally, I can't see him leaving Atlético Madrid in January. However, Griezmann has made less than subtle hints about his desire to link up at club level with compatriot Paul Pogba and it's therefore plausible to invest heavily on the basis that another long, protracted Manchester United transfer saga could be amidst us – leading to multiple Buzz wins and huge appreciation in the value of Griezmann futures.'

Since then, Griezmann has come close (but no cigar) to scooping the Buzz on a handful of occasions but more importantly his value per future has increased by an amazing 200% (£1.37 -> £4.11).

‘Ronaldo, currently priced at £1.72 per future, may lead to many traders overlooking the Real Madrid talisman, especially after he put pen to paper on a new 5 year contract tying him to Madrid until 2021. However, after leading his club and country to Champions League and Euro 2016 glory, Ronaldo looks all but certain to pick up his fourth Ballon D'or award when the annual ceremony takes place on January 9th 2017. In 2016 Messi topped the Buzz leaderboard on the day he collected his 5th Ballon D'or, and scooped the Buzz again the following day. There's no doubt that Ronaldo, journalists and fellow professionals past and present will have plenty to say in the lead up to the 2017 Ballon D'or, and I fully expect a handful of Buzz awards to fall Ronaldo's way during the process. In addition it's likely that his price will rise, albeit temporarily, by ~15% to the £2.00 mark.'

Ronaldo claimed a total of 4 Buzz wins to return a total of 20p in dividends, whilst his value peaked at £2.04 on the 16th January.

‘Daniel Sturridge, currently priced at £1.13 per future, will not be content with warming the Liverpool bench forever; the January transfer window rumour mill has already begun churning stories about potential suitors for the England and Liverpool forward. Furthermore, even if Sturridge doesn't force a move away from Merseyside in January, Sadio Mane's absence for the 2017 African Cup of Nations will lead to increased opportunities for Sturridge in a team that will likely be heavily involved in the title race.'

Sturridge didn't force a move away from Merseyside in the January transfer window but rumours about West Ham interest saw his value increase to approximately £1.50, an increase of 33% (£1.13 -> £1.50).

But now it's time to look forward, and with that here's 3 tips for further future ROI:

1) Ibrahimovic

Currently priced at £3.93, the Manchester United forward has dipped in value from his peak of £4.08 (17th January). The likely causation, amongst other factors, is a relative Buzz drought from the imperious Sweede. Ibrahimovic hasn't topped the Buzz leaderboard for over a month now, in fact his last win came on the 2nd January. However, with the League Cup final fast approaching (26th February), and a return to European football for Man Utd on the horizon (16th February) Ibrahimovic is unlikely to stay below the £4 mark for long. Now that the January transfer window has passed, and with it the increased randomisation of Buzz winners, it is reasonable to expect a return to multiple and frequent Buzz wins from Ibrahimovic.

2) Lewandowski

Currently priced at £0.79 the Bayern Munich front man will spearhead an attack that will surely trouble Arsenal in their upcoming Champions League last 16 tie (15th February & 7th March). The clash between Arsenal and Bayern Munich is arguably the fixture of the round and consequently a price rise to the £1 mark is a reasonable expectation, representing a ROI of 25%.

3) Rooney

Rooney, surprisingly sits 6th in the Index First Team at a value of £3.74. Links to a summer transfer to the Chinese Super League have been doing the rounds, and when you consider that Diego Costa went from approximately £3.30 per future to in excess of £4 a with his January meltdown then surely Rooney can surpass the £4 mark himself. Rooney has enjoyed a tremulous 14 year relationship with the English press since breaking onto the scene as a 16 year old. Arguably there's no one the press like to spin stories about more than Rooney, a claim backed up by his position in the all time Buzz leader-board (http://www.footballbuzz.guru/football/sector/all/period/alltime). You can expect this to continue and deliver Buzz wins for those traders who hold Rooney futures.
