I thought that when a stock split increased the # of shares (a bad thing according to the book), but with twice as many shares, a rise in $1 of a share is now worth 2 to you, correct?

Yes, but keep in mind: A $1 drop in price is effectively a $2 loss! Actually, I'm not done reading the book yet, so I should probably just keep my mouth shut! (Just finished 'Breakers and 'Tweeners and only a few pages into 'Makers).
