A stock split does not change a company’s principles in theory, but the move will attract retail investors who were otherwise limited to low-dollar stocks, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday at his show “Money crazy “.
New ‘Investor Group’: Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) CEO Tim Cook and Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk got it right when they announced their share split, Cramer said.
“Stock tagging” matters “to the new generation, and companies need the new demographic investor group to be counted as shareholders, the CNBC host said.
“We know what happens after the split,”; he said. “This new group of investors, those who want low-dollar stocks, will start buying and holding these breed names better than stained penny stocks.”
Mega-cap companies are “ignoring” the small investor, and Cramer said doing so is a mistake. After all, retail investors are often “more stable shareholders” compared to hedge funds known for providing “no-fidelity,” he said.
