Observations On The Popular Tesla Stock

Thanks for the question! The stock is quite expensive for some investors. A 5:1 split allows a wider cross section of investors to buy TSLA and makes it more accesible for Tesla emloyees to have the opportunity to buy the stock. Additionally it will change the wighting of the index in which TSLA is listed - the lower the share price the less wight that particular stock will have on the index. The cheaper price and to be able to buy a small amount of the full share will increase the investor's appetite in Tesla.
