Let's find out - Should one consider FACE VALUE before buying into a stock

In this series let's explore if Face value should be considered while picking a stock.

Most would already have witnessed that companies split the stock to increase liquidity once stock price is high. Also, how announcements of stock splits further fuel stock prices in most cases. And after split liquidity adds more to the price.

For good companies stock splits mostly works as a good strategy to increase market cap.

Also had come across a research report some time back, which demonstrated that historically stock splits have worked better than bonuses (will try to find the article).

However, many stocks in the market are of F.V 1 and many below F.V 5.
And stock can be split from 10 to 5 to 1 or 10 to 2 to 1 only.

Once F.V reaches 1 company can only issue bonus to bring in somewhat the same effect as a stock split.

Would be exploring more about this question.

In the meantime please share in comments if you feel same and if any really good company would soon hit this case. Also could this limit appreciation of the stock price in future? What strategies could be applied to overcome this and inject liquidity into the stock.

Which one will you prefer TCS at FV 1 or INFY at FV 5?

STOCK TIPS: Do they really work?

Nice article explaining how stock tip providers work and run their business.

It explains how stock tip providers maintain a database of potential/interested people willing to invest in stock markets. Then divide the list into sub-lists and send out buy/sell tips on the same stock to one of the group. Then based on the success of the call, the respective group is targeted . And next tip is forwarded to only this group.

This is continued by trapping and dividing the groups into smaller bases.

Its a very good read for understanding how actually tips provider works and claim to have a very high success ratio.
There may be few good providers, but overall this is how it runs.

Complete article can be read at Business line LINK

This article talks about growth of new cities, e-commerce, new modes of communication etc.
Lets try to find companies which would benefit and directly play these themes in Indian markets at reasonable valuations.
