i hear you 100% but i also think you missed my point. The average investor does not have the funds to invest in a $100 stock but they do have the funds to invest in a $45-$50 stock. The price of what it costs to purchare shares is irrelevant. That is what i meant by keeping the prices of stocks at a decent price. These companies that keep their prices like Berkshire so high that the normal person can't invest. And that is what the companies want. They do not want the average Joe investing in their company. .And it is a growing trend. And that stinks.
I see your point but in my opinion, keeping a stock at a decent price opens the stock up to more buyers. More people buying also means higher prices. But I also know that means more shares which could also lower the prices. Historically, CB usually splits at 100. If they announce, that would probably cause a nice spike also. IMO.
