yea no way they split doesn't make sense at this point...with the buyback/divy scenario in play. Only reason why a lot do it is to make their stock attractive, Visa just lets the numbers talking and you must pay up for it. Everyone got a gift on that sell-off
I wouldn't count that out just yet. Being in the Dow 30 means there's more politics to play. IBM had to split their stock when they blew passed $200 the first time around because it will end up being a situation where 1 stock carries too much weight- that's probably why Mastercard was passed up. The DJIA looks at share price and not market cap so if it gets too large they will want to bring it back down just so the index isn't all about Visa.
