Studies have been done on this in the past, and although stocks prices do tend to increase very modestly immediately after a split, factoring in transaction costs basically wipes out any gain.In other words, it makes no difference performance-wise. My thinking is, if I want to buy 100 shares of company XYZ, why not just wait until they're cheaper, and I have more money to spend elsewhere.Hope this helps...md
