I’ve seen lots of talk about share spiting and I know it’s happened before on FI. Can any of the guys who have been here a while answer a few questions:
What price was the highest priced player??
Did dividends split?
What happened to the market?
Does anybody really think it will happen?
@SW-FI media dividend was 20p and shares split in 4 I believe and MB went to 5p.
@SW-FI don't think it will happen again though as this was pre PB and would be hugely complex
Thanks, how much was the highest valued player? When it happened ....
@SW-FI dunno wasn't here just picked up that info through people sharing it previously
I think the top player was Rooney, who got to about £6.60 before the split.
Which means he was top of the market at roughly £1.65 in current prices. Although of course there was no performance buzz.
a 1/2 share split would be simple enough if they increased the 5p media payouts to 6p
If there's a 1/2 share split then Neymar's price goes down to £5. Do people think there would then be a mad rush at the lower price like with the IPOs or would there be a more steady increase?
Having witnessed the last share split I cannot see it happening again any time soon, so anyone hoping for a £5 Neymar is in for a long disappointing wait. If when he hits £15 and Messi or whoever is second is still at £8 then maybe it’ll happen but not for a fiver. However with all the new money coming, I just can’t see it.
I don't fully understand this. Are you saying they could for example half the price of Neymar? If so surely that just wipes half of our investment? I am probably being thick here and have misunderstood but this concerns me greatly
@speightman80 they give you twice the number of shares but halve the value
