Ericsson is a Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company headquartered in Stockholm. The company offers services, software and infrastructure in information and communications technology for telecom operators, traditional telecommunications and Internet Protocol (IP) networks, fixed and mobile broadband, IPTV, video systems, and an extensive services operation. It was founded in 1876 by Lars Magnus Ericsson; as of 2016 it is the world's largest network equipment manufacturer with about 40% of the global market (excluding China), employing around 115,000 people.

Over the past century, Ericsson shares have experienced both highs and lows. In recent years, Ericsson shares have been on a bit of a roller coaster ride, as the company has faced challenges in its core business. However, Ericsson remains a major player in the telecommunications industry, and its share price is still closely watched by investors around the world. Ericsson is listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange and is a component of the OMX Stockholm 30 index.

Ericsson shares have had a volatile history, with the price rising and falling sharply at various points. Ericsson shares peaked in 2000 at over SEK 1,000 (US$ 150) per share before collapsing to below SEK 100 (US$ 15) in 2002. The shares then recovered and reached SEK 600 (US$ 90) in 2007 before again falling sharply during the global financial crisis. Ericsson shares have since recovered and are currently trading around SEK 100 (US$ 15).

When you invest or trade Ericsson shares with a CFD, you are essentially speculating on the future direction of the company's share price. If you think Ericsson's share price will go up, you can buy (long) a CFD; if you think it will fall, you can sell (short) a CFD.

When you trade Ericsson shares with a CFD, you will need to pay attention to the company's earnings releases, as these can have a big impact on the share price. Ericsson is a large and established company, so it is unlikely to see the same kind of volatility as a smaller, less-established company. However, Ericsson's share price can still move significantly in response to earnings releases and other news.

If you're thinking of investing or trading Ericsson shares with a CFD, make sure you understand how CFDs work and the risks involved. And remember, always trade responsibly.

Are Ericsson shares a good investment?

+ -

It depends on a number of factors, including your personal financial goals and risk tolerance. On the one hand, Ericsson is a large and well-established company with a history of strong financial performance. Its shares have generally been rising in value over the past few years.

On the other hand, there is always some risk associated with investing in stocks, and Ericsson shares are no exception. The company faces stiff competition from other telecommunications firms, and there is always the possibility that its share price could fall if the company unexpectedly misses its financial targets.

Ultimately, only you can decide whether or not Ericsson shares are a good investment for you. If you are comfortable with the risks, then buying shares in the company could be a wise move. However, if you are risk-averse, you may want to consider investing in other types of assets.

Who owns most Ericsson shares?

+ -

As of early 2021, the top five institutional investors in Ericsson were Norges Bank Investment Management (9.38%), The Vanguard Group (6.67%), BlackRock (4.82%), State Street Global Advisors (3.21%), and JPMorgan Asset Management (2.61%). Together, these five investors owned over 27% of Ericsson's shares outstanding. Individual investors can also own Ericsson shares through mutual funds or exchange-traded funds that invest in Swedish stocks. For example, the iShares MSCI Sweden ETF invests in a broad range of Swedish companies, including Ericsson.

Do Ericsson shares pay dividends?

+ -

Yes, Ericsson shares do pay dividends. The company's dividend policy is to distribute approximately 30-50% of its annual net income to shareholders. Therefore, shareholders can expect to receive a dividend payout each year. However, the exact amount of the dividend payout will vary depending on the company's financial performance in any given year.
