Direction of Underlying Asset Price Movement on a price decrease

Falling factors:

  • The crisis aftermath. Almost 10 years have passed since the global financial crisis, but the company stock price not only did not return to the pre-crisis level, but continues to fall throughout the period, relative to the historical maximum, the stock price is lower by more than three times.
  • Negative financial indicators. Over the past year, the capitalization has gone down by almost half, at the end of 2016, it was $2.3 billion, and at the time of calculation, it is only $1.23 billion.
  • Competitors. Despite the fact that Guess? was one of the first major clothing manufacturers to launch their own online store in 1999, it has not managed to compete with the largest e-commerce clothing stores.
  • Scandals. At the beginning of the year, the former Guess? company face, actress and model Kate Upton accused the creator and chairman of the board of directors Paul Marciano of sexual misconduct. That story caused almost a 25 percent drop in stock price, and the echoes of this situation will continue to negatively affect the company, while Marciano remains head of the company.



The stock price is in the middle of the third impulse downward wave, and its nearest possible ending is at the level of $12.7 per share, which is the continuation of the share price decline by 34.2% of the current rate.

How the product works

Once the contract is concluded, the initial price of the underlying asset, the Capital protection level, and the participation rate are recorded.

Investor risks are limited to the amount determinated by the Capital protection level.
A product with 100% protection level carries the lowest possible risk and the lowest potential yield.

The repayment to the client is calculated according to the following formula:
Repayment = Investment amount * Capital protection level + Participation rate * Price change- Commission.
Where the investment amount is taken as 100%, and the price change is calculated as follows (Current Price – Initial Price) / Initial Price * 100%.

The commission for a investment product creation is 2% of the initial investment and is charged at the time of product expiration.

If at the Expiration date the price of the underlying asset is higher than the initial price, the investor is paid 100% of the invested funds and an income equal to the product of the participation rate and the growth of the underlying asset. Conversely, the investor is paid the invested funds in accordance with the Capital protection level.

The parameters of the products are indicative and may vary depending on the market situation.



1. The price of the underlying security moves in the direction chosen by the investor.

In this case, the investor receives the invested amount calculated by the formula: 100% (initial investment) * 80% (Capital protection level) + 0.6 (participation rate) * 60% (price change) = 116%

2. The underlying security’s price moves in the opposite direction and finished below the Capital protection level.

In this case, the investor receives the invested amount calculated by the formula: 100% (initial investment) * 80% (Capital protection level) = 80%
