Good question Mike..... and the answer to A is IDK....

The answer to B is ó yes and no.

The P/E ratio doesnít change - so the stocks actual representative value is static....in the sense that a split doesnít ďAddĒ value... but making the stock affordable to purchase by a broader range of investors, I think would help it increase in price.

Someone like me that buys 10,000 to 30,000 shares of a name ó and I hold 200 of Amazon (AMZN)? But the point of making it more or less valuable doesnít change....

Letís say they did a 10 for 1 ó so Iíd now have 2000 shares... Now does it go up and down $2.00 a day vs $20 ?? Doesnít really matter... itís the same money.

Greg, I'd like to say thanks for all your guidance. I pay much more attentin to my retirement since this thread started. My son manages his own Roth account with Schwab from his phone. I got him to start w/$1200.00 when he was 12.$1300. when he was 13. He's now 20 and actually knows more about money management than I ever did when I was 40. This is all thanks to you and all the other contributors to this thread. Thanks sincerely.

Greg,
As many have said, thank you for your effort in this thread. As I told you in person, I am literally 6 figures ahead of where I was when this thread started. I attribute 99% of that to the knowledge gained here. Thanks for all that you do!

Thanks Greg! I wouldn't have started investing or understood the importance of it at all if it wasn't for this thread. Thanks for showing us new ways to think about finances!

so I recently liquidated my holdings in STX, I didnt like the volatility of the stock and nand memory

I liked the dividend but after a few years of being positive, I was underwater with them for ~6-7 years

Anyways this june they went up to my cost basis and I jumped

Any suggestions what tech company is looking solid right now?
I was looking at IBM, I like their dividend and its a big name and seems like they are better diversified in terms of revenue streams than Seagate

Another name that I thought of was intel, but not sure

thoughts? suggestions?

I am very leery of the FAANG stocks
