Regarding stock splits, research shows they have a beneficial effect on stock price. Rightline.net states that stock splits have salutary effects for next 3 years after the split. http://www.rightline.net/splits/
“A 1996 study by David Ikenberry of Rice University measured the short and long-term performance of stock splits. His research included all the 1,275 companies whose stock split 2-for-1 between 1975 and 1990. Mr. Ikenberry compared the split stocks to a control group of stocks for similar-sized companies in similar sectors that had not split. His results were startling. The split stock group performed 8% better than the control group after one year, and 16% better after three years.
