And splits make stock available to the masses. Berkshire and Seaboard trade in pretty thin volumes.
This seems pretty much a useless thing to debate. I'm sure an examination of the history of the stock market can point to many "real boost" non-split successes like Berkshire and Seaboard as well as many "real boost" stocks that have split. After all Berkshire ain't got any boost on Microsoft and it has pslit many times over.
Like it or not, if share price keeps appreciating this baby WILL split.
I understand that but why would people still be trading it. It had about 6 times the normal volume but lost less than 1/2 a cent. Does this mean that some people still feel there's a chance that there will still be some value in the stock when the company emerges from bankruptcy?
