Generally your focus should be on total amount invested in each stock; not in stock price.

There are two considerations. Penny stocks are a bad investment. Many pros will avoid stocks priced below $10/share.

Very high prices shares, (Berkshire-Hathaway A stock, is the usual example) can make it difficult to buy shares that fit your budget.

Share price otherwise is not a concern in buying shares. Companies can split their shares to reduce share price when they like. They can do reverse splits to raise share price (but usually that's an indication of a failing company).

Buy shares for their potential to increase in value. Share price is a minor consideration.
